Glasgow Short Film Festival
Bill Douglas Award 3: We Will Not Act Accordingly
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.
The third programme considers the roles we take on and the roles that are forced upon us. Our image is currency, and offers a path out of quotidian routines. We convey forbidden intimacy and desire in a typography of apparently innocent gestures, or conceal our true selves within idealised body suits. But sometimes cruelty and hate must be met with defiance, provocation and, above all, authenticity.
The programme includes award winners from Rotterdam, IndieLisboa, Melbourne, L'Alternativa de Barcelona and Kurzfilmtage Winterthur.
All films captioned for d/Deaf viewers.
