New events were announced yesterday for next year's Glasgow Film Festival. They include a school disco and a special tribute to the greatest films never made.

Following in the footsteps of the festivals previous wildly successful event nights, the school disco will be held in SWG3 and will give attendees a choice between watching Gregory's Girl or Clueless before the dancing begins. Football strips and prom dresses are encouraged. "We can’t wait to let our hair down and relive our youth," said festival co-director Allison Gardner.

The Unfilmables will bring together Oscar-nominated composer Mica Levi, video artist Francesca Levi and electronic pioneers Wrangler for music and film including The Colour Of Chips (a UK-set re-imagining of Sergei Parajanov’s The Colour Of Pomegranates) and The Tourist (based on) Claire Noto’s Seventies script, long-regarded as one of the greatest science fiction films never to make it to the big screen).

Sacred Paws, winners of the 2017 Scottish Album of the Year, will provide live accompaniment to Glasgow-based artist and filmmaker Margaret Salmon’s Mm, which follows speedway motorcycle team the Berwick Bandits.

"Glasgow Film Festival is thrilled to be working with some of the leading artists across visual arts and music for these live events as part of our Sound & Vision and Crossing the Line strands," said programme manager Sean Greenhorn.
