The Glasgow Youth Film Festival has moved to September, and this year's event has a bumper line-up. As always, the films have been selected entirely by young people, and there's something for every age group. There are also special events to add to the excitement.

"Our goal through the Glasgow Youth Film Festival is to bring in young people to the GFT and show them how amazing the art of film is," says the programming team.

The festival runs from 27 September to 1 October.
