The Glasgow Film Festival is back for its eighth year in 2012, bigger and better and now a real contender on the international festival scene. It's opening with the UK gala premiere of Your Sister's Sister and closing wth Le Havre. Many of the best films in its 2011 selection went on to enjoy successful runs in cinemas nationwide, so this could be your chance to get a sneak peek at the next big thing.
This time around, there's a Gene Kelly retrospective for dance fans and another spectacularly scary weekend courtesy of the Frightfest team. There's also the Youth Film Festival, which runs before the main one, from the 5th to the 15th of February, and the Glasgow Short Film Festival, running from the 9th to the 12th.
Alongside the films, Glasgow will have a host of exciting related arts events, incluing a stage version of Belleville Rendez-Vous. We'll be bringing you all the latest festival news as it develops, so watch this space!
The Glasgow Film Festival 2012 will run from the 16th to the 26th of February.
