Glasgow Short Film Festival
Bill Douglas Award 2: What We Leave Lingering
Sat 25 March 2023
The Bill Douglas Award at Glasgow Short Film Festival showcases new international short films that reflect the qualities found in the work of Scotland’s own Bill Douglas: honesty, formal innovation, and cinematic storytelling that places sound and image centre stage.
Memory, legacy and family tensions are explored in the second Bill Douglas Award selection. A child literally flies the nest, an inner demon is made flesh and desert sands invade a long forgotten childhood home. An internal voice sends out a cryptic cry for help and a mother and son embark on a long overdue conversation.
The programme includes award-winners from Cannes, Melbourne, Annecy, Sarajevo and DOK Leipzig, as well as the latest work by GSFF regular Vytautas Katkus (Lithuania).
All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers.
