- Vintage Hollywood to be celebrated in 2014 and Chile to be the country in focus for this 10th edition of the Glasgow Film Festival
The Glasgow Film Festival turns 10 in 2014 and the festival is celebrating by introducing new strands. The 1939: Hooray for Hollywood strand will salute a vintage year for Hollywood by screening that year’s all time classic releases like Stagecoach, Gone With The Wind and The Wizard Of Oz, amongst many others.
The CineChile strand will focus on Chile, where filmmaking has recently been energised by two international successes, No [+see also:

Allan Hunter, Co-Director of the Glasgow Film Festival, said, “We take the bond of trust with our audiences very seriously and look forward to presenting them with a 2014 programme that matches their expectations of what a Film Festival should be and how a special anniversary should be celebrated.”
Janet Archer, CEO of Creative Scotland, said, “The Festival's tenth anniversary programme is set to offer a strong, extensive and exciting variety of screenings and events. The festival attracts filmmakers and film lovers from across Scotland, the UK and internationally, and its success and reputation has grown year on year.”
