and the world premiere of Hamish, a documentary about Scottish poet, songwriter and intellectual Hamish Henderson by Robbie Fraser. Veteran director Peter Greenaway and stuntman Vic Armstrong will also be participating in In Person events discussing their careers. With 308 separate events and screenings and 174 films, this is one of the largest programmes the festival has fielded.

The festival programme had been finalised well before the news of David Bowie’s death had been announced, and by coincidence festival audiences have several chances to pay their respects to the late musician and actor. DA Pennebaker’s concert film Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars will screen preceded by Rubika Shah’s Documentary short Let’s Dance: Bowie Down Under. And, there will be a 40th anniversary screening of Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth, starring Bowie. 

Allison Gardner, Glasgow Film Festival co-director, said, “The festival keeps moving forward, with new developments like our Industry Focus conference, whilst also maintaining our roots as an audience-focused festival where everyone can come together to share a love of cinema.”
