Zia Anger in My First Film
This year's Glasgow Short Film Festival is to open with the Scottish première of Zia Anger's My First Film, it was revealed yesterday - and attendees are being asked to keep their phones switched on as the director introduces and interacts with her work. Music video guru and performance artist Anger will tell the story of an abandoned first feature and the experiences of female filmmakers through the big screen, live YouTube windows and sequences sent directly to the phones of audience members.
The festival has also announced a screening of Marie Losier's Felix In Wonderland, an experimental voyage through the work of cult electronic musician Felix Kubin, which will be followed by a rare musical performajnce from the star himself, supported by local R&B-disco-house-dreampop band Babe.
The festival will run from 18-22 March and the full programme will be announced on 13 February.
