The full programme for this year's Glasgow Short Film Festival was announced today, and it's already raising a few eyebrows, challenging expectations of what short film means. As well as a marathon overnight session featuring the work of legendary Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul - with pillows and mattresses provided for sleepy attendees - there will be a screening of Kevin Jerome Everson's 8-hour-long Park Lanes, a study of factory life, alongside his short work.

"This year GSFF tackles work and rest, through Kevin Jerome Everson’s meditations on Afro-American working lives, and the lush dreamscapes of Thai artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul. There will also be time for play, with late night cult screenings, and live shows from Babe and all female hip hop night Tomboy," said festival director Matt Lloyd. "This March, Glasgow belongs to short film!"

The 11th edition of the festival, which is the biggest competitive short film showcase in Scotland, includes celebrations of the work of local filmmaker Eve Riley and Paisley artist Falconer Houston, who will introduce work he produced in the Sixties and Seventies. There will also be a programme of work by deaf filmmakers and a session dedicated to female vampires. It will all be centred around a new festival hub at Civic House in Speirs Wharf, where live events and parties will be held.

The festival will run from 14 to 18 March, and as usual we'll be bringing you coverage here at Eye For Film.
