The Glasgow Film Festival programme is announced and features Film4-backed films Second Coming and Catch Me Daddy plus much, much more, from 18th February to 1st March
It’s almost time once more for the Glasgow Film Festival, and once again, its programmers have put together a cracking selection of films, including a few Film4 favourites. We’re delighted to have backed Debbie Tucker Green’s drama Second Coming, which receives its Scottish premiere at the festival. Starring Nadine Marshall and Idris Elba, it follows a tight family unit navigating their way through life in the aftermath of an unexplained pregnancy.
Also on a Film4 note, Daniel Wolfe’s Catch Me Daddy will play the festival, following its world premiere at Cannes in 2014. This dark, blisteringly tense thriller about a girl on the run stars award-winning newcomer Sameena Jabeen Ahmed and will be released in UK cinemas on February 27th.
Elsewhere, the festival explores Glasgow’s history on film in the Cinema City strand, looking at the way films like Under The Skin have made the most of the city as a location, while fans of classic cinema can revel in the glorious existence of an Ingrid Bergman retrospective.
Personally, I’m really looking forward to finally catching Carol Morley’s follow up to Dreams Of A Life, acclaimed teen hysteria drama The Falling. You can watch the trailer here:
