The Glasgow Film Festival is back this year with a hybrid event, and will also screen some of its gala premières simultaneously at cinemas across the UK, from London to Stornoway. It will celebrate the contemporary cinema of Africa and showcase a retrospective of Edith Carlmar, Norway's first female film director, as well as including the ever-popular Glasgow Frightfest horror showcase.

The festival will run from 2 to 13 March.

We're still adding details here, so please bear with us, and watch out for more.
