The Glasgow Film Festival is over for another year. Blake Backlash and Matthew Turner reflect.
Blake Backlash on the unexpected delights and delightfully unexpected at the Glasgow Film Festival.
Blake Backlash finds that it’s not safe to stay indoors when the Glasgow Film Festival is on.
Blake Backlash is here with some ideas about how to get the most out of the Glasgow Film Festival, which gets going tonight.
This year Glasgow Film Festival was ten years old. We asked five writers to tell you about a film they saw during the Festival that matters.
Glasgow is a beautiful city that hosts a vibrant film festival every year. Three MostlyFilm writers were there this year, and they’ve written about it.
THE VETERAN’S PERSPECTIVE
BY DONNA SWABEY
I’ve been a regular attendee at The Glasgow Film Festival for the past five years or so, and this is the first time I decided to take the duration of the festival off work and jump in with both feet. Apart from emerging chair-shaped and half blind, I had a great festival. My method of choosing films is always somewhat erratic, and I tend to be heavily influenced by the blurb in the programme. I enjoy seeing classics on the big screen, but like to take a chance on films never likely to be screened again in the UK. All in all I had a fairly good hit/miss ratio this year. And I only turned up at the wrong cinema once.
