Watch highlights from Glasgow Film Festival 2016, which happened from 17-28 February at Glasgow Film Theatre, CCA and over 20 venues across the city.
The festival opened on February 17 with the UK premiere of Joel and Ethan Coen’s all-star Hollywood satire Hail, Caesar! and concluded on February 28 with the UK premiere of the Oscar-nominated Anomalisa. In between GFF had over 60 UK premieres, achieved a record-breaking 42,000 admissions and welcomed an array of local and international guests including Richard Gere, directors Lucile Hadzihaliliovic, Ben Wheatley and Joachim Trier, actors Shirley Henderson, Hannah Murray and Roland Moller, legendary stuntman Vic Armstrong and screenwriter Alexandre Baciu.
GFF continued to build its reputation for staging screenings in unexpected venues across the city, transporting handcuffed audience members in orange jumpsuits to a secret location for a screening of Con Air, staging an unforgettable screening of the David Bowie classic The Man Who Fell To Earth at The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre and commissioning Ela Orleans to compose a haunting live score to the silent melodrama Lucky Star at Mackintosh Queen’s Cross.
