Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Glitch >> 2015
Glitch is new on the scene but has a lot of ambition. Aiming to tell some of the stories missing from mainstream cinema, it focuses on queer, trans and intersex people and people of colour. It has a packed programme of features and shorts and several of the filmmakers will be in attendance to take audience questions. It also offers free haircuts.
Glitch is held in the CCA in Glasgow. All events are free. All films are subtitled. All live events are BSL interpreted.
The festival runs from 19 to 28 March.
