Glasgow Film Festival 2018 – Line up announcement

We love a good film festival, but a film festival with celebrity guests, anticipated premiers, and an entire office floor dedicated to the Nakatomi Plaza? Christ, the Glasgow Film Festival has got it all this year.

There are 52 different Scottish premieres taking place this year, including Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck, starring Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore, the Academy Award nominated A Fantastic Woman, and Lynne Ramsay’s thriller You Were Never Really There, introduced by the director herself. There are also 77 UK premieres, perhaps most excitingly the Wim Wenders’ directed Submergence, lead by James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander, a collaboration too beautiful to turn down.

The star factor at this year’s festival goes beyond just Lynne Ramsay; Bill Pullman is attending to talk new Western The Ballad of Lefty Brown, Paddy Considine is there for his next directorial effort Journeyman, and Karen Gillan will be introducing her directorial debut, The Party’s Just Beginning. And of course, the festival brings the scares with Frightfest, putting on horror films like Ghost Stories, The Lodger, The Devil and the Blacksmith and Ravenous, not to mention the world premiere of the long lost shlock-fest Attack of the Bat Monsters. With any luck, it’s just as bad as it sounds.

Last but certainly not least, both Die Hard and Working Girl celebrate their 30th anniversaries this year, so what better to celebrate these two great office based films than decking out the top two floors of the Former College of Building and Print to look like the Nakatomi Plaza and present an exclusive screening. It just doesn’t get more exciting than that.

There’s way more premieres, special events, celebrity guests, and all sorts of film goodness to be checked out from the 21st February-4th March.

  1. I’ve been hearing about The Ballad of Lefty Brown. I dig these Revisionist Westerns along the lines of McCabe and Mrs Miller and The Proposition, but what I’m really excited about is You Were Never Really Here. Can’t wait for this one. Love the post. Thanks.
