Allan Hunter, GFF Co-Director, said, “It feels only appropriate that our Audience Award asks the best festival audience in the world to give their stamp of approval to a dazzling new talent. It is a festival filled with people and places close to home but also one that embraces a diverse, wonderful world of cinema, perfectly illustrated by our opening and closing galas.  It’s a huge honour for GFF to be chosen for the European Premiere of Noah Baumbach’s bittersweet delight While We're Young, and Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure is an utterly brilliant film. Home and away, this is a festival for everyone who loves the movies.”  

Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Europe and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop said, “This year the festival feels both international and distinctly home-grown, showcasing dynamic Scottish film, music and visual art talent, and some of Glasgow’s most beautiful historic buildings, whilst also bringing some of the most exciting new films in the world to Scotland.”

Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, EventScotland, Creative Scotland and the British Film Institute support the festival.
