Glasgow Short Film Festival

International Competition

13-16 February 2014

Scotland's leading short film festival returns for four days of screenings, workshops and parties. Whilst CCA remains our hub, this year the International competition will take place in the state-of-the-art GFT Screen 3, and we venture into The Arches, Glasgow School of Art and an underground car park.

International Competition 2: Reality Bleed:


This programme draws inspiration from reality in startling ways. Whether placing conversations in strange new contexts or secretly capturing the sinister banality of state power on camera, each of these films investigates the ethics of the moving image. The programme includes works from China and Finland, as well as a revelatory film featuring a cast of first time performers, all inmates in a Scottish youth prison.

The Case Cecilia Stenbom, The Immaculates (Gli Immacolati) Ronny Trocker, Emergency Calls Hannes Vartiainen & Pekka Veikkolainen, The Questioning Zhu Rikun, Colours Graham Fitzpatrick, Trusts and Estates Jeanette Bonds.


The Case was commissioned by Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival. Produced together with independent producer and filmmaker Mat Fleming. Cinematography by Minttumaari Mäntynen, edited by Edwin Mingard and original score by Marek Gabrysch.
