Symphony No 42 Symphony No 42

The Glasgow Short Film Festival comes of age this year and is branching out on its own, with a five day programme packed with interesting material. As well as showcasing films to distributors, the pres and the public, it provides a gathering place for filmakers to talk and exchange ideas, and it will end with an awards ceremony.

Based at the GFT and CCA, the festival runs from 11 to 15 March.
