GYFF15 will be held on 6th-8th February 2015


Glasgow Youth Film Festival is Scotland’s most innovative film festival for young adult audiences. GYFF runs every February. Part of Glasgow Film Festival.

GYFF has a new look this year. Now one weekend-long, the festival will focus exclusively on films which look at teenage and young adult life, as most of the child-friendly programming from previous years has been integrated into the main Glasgow Film Festival Modern Families strand. The three-day lineup is a full-on teen takeover, with a jam-packed programme taking in everything from cutting-edge sci-fi premieres, late-night cult classics, a special pop-up closing gala, and a stellar set of films, workshops and events throughout.

As the worldwide film industry remains perpetually fascinated by teenage issues, many of the films in the programme deal with themes of isolation and the pains of growing up. The festival kicks off on Friday 6 February with the Scottish premiere of eerie sci-fi thriller The Signal, which stars Laurence Fishburne and rising star Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel). On Saturday 7 GYFF is delighted to host a special panel event and screening with the cast and crew of hit Channel 4 series Glue.

As 2015 is Glasgow’s Green Year, the GYFF team will take over BAaD (Barras Art and Design) at the famous Barras Market for one night only on Sunday 8 February, turning it into a fantasy wilderness for special themed pop-up screenings of cult favourites Jumanji and Labyrinth. There'll be a raucous forest-party atmosphere, live bands and food to close out the weekend.

Screenings in between include an ambitious world cinema programme, with German Hitchcockian thriller For No Eyes Only, quirky coming of age drama Supernova, and sleek sci-fi anime Time of Eve, accompanied by GYFF’s now-traditional Cosplay Parade, where young fans of cult TV series, anime and computer games, dress up and role-play as their icons. Look out for the GMAC Film Academy, an event designed to introduce youth audiences to the idea of studying film, as well as workshops with directors and screenwriters designed for aspiring young filmmakers.
