Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Bootleg Film Festival >> 2008
The first ever Bootleg Film Festival was held in Glasgow from September 11 - 13. The venue was the basement of the Offshore cafe on Gibson Street, normally used as an art gallery, and visitors to the cafe were encouraged to pop downstairs and give it a try. A screen and projector were rigged up and an intimate atmosphere created within the enclosed space.
Following a lengthy submissions procedure, over 45 films were shown at this event, including features and shorts. Several of the film-makers attended to see their work screened professionally for the first time. We'll be adding reviews here over the next few weeks.
