Glasgow Film Festival 2021 Programme Unveiled With Virtual Screenings

By James White | Posted 14 Jan 2021Though all involved had hoped that film festivals would start getting back to normal in 2021, coronavirus surges and lockdowns are making that impossible. And like so many before them, the team behind the Glasgow Film Festival is getting creative and moving the entire event online. Films set to show at the virtual fest include Black Bear, starring Aubrey Plaza, Irvine Welsh and Ewan Bremner's Creation Stories and The Mauritanian.

"The Godfather." The cat held by Marlon Brando in the opening scene was a stray that Coppola found while on the lot at Paramount, and was not originally called for in the script. So content was the cat that its purring muffled some of Brando's dialogue, and, as a result, most of his lines had to be looped.

Running between 24 February and 7 March, the event will offer screenings through its Glasgow Film At Home system to anyone in the UK, the fest this year also includes screenings of the acclaimed Steven Yeun-starring Minari, as well as Killing Escobar, The Toll, Cowboys and Riders Of Justice. "Glasgow Film Festival 2021 may look different to previous years, but what has not changed is the quality of incredible films from across the world that we are bringing to our audiences," says Allison Gardner, CEO of Glasgow Film and Glasgow Film Festival Co-director. All in all, the event will host six World premieres, two European premieres and 49 UK premieres online.
