The Glasgow Short Film Festival is back for another year, opening with the Scottish première of Australian art collective Soda_Jerk’s Terror Nullius and including a trawl through the archives of Scottish short film scheme First Reels, which marked the big breaks of Peter Mullan and David Mackenzie. It will feature over 20 new Scottish-made shorts and 33 new international shorts from 26 countries in competition for prestigious festival awards.
