The Glasgow Youth Film Festival opened this afternoon with a family gala screening of Mr. Peabody And Mr. Sherman, the story of a brilliant inventor who also happens to be a dog. With a gala showing of youth punk hit We Are The Best! scheduled for tonight, it's already pulling in the crowds.
Special events this year include a movie poster design workshop, a cosplay red carpet parade and a comedy writing master class with Burnistoun alumnus and first time film director Robert Florence. There will also be a closing night showcase of local bands for the over-12s, with visual contributions from Edinburgh experimental filmmaker Ania Urbanowska.
The festival runs until 12 February.
