Glasgow Film Festival I Want My MTV

Sat 29 February 2020

I Want My MTV

Upstart music network MTV burst onto televisions on August 1, 1981. Via a combination of scrappy hosts, flyby-the-seat-of-their-pants production style, and music mini-movies, MTV was like nothing Americans had ever seen before. A nostalgic and thrilling ride, I Want My MTV takes its audience back to the beginning, when the idea of a television channel devoted solely to screening newfangled videos seemed destined for failure. The film shows how a team of young executives tasked with growing this seed of an idea, would quickly flourish into a beloved but often controversial cultural juggernaut.

Also screening on Sun 1 Mar, 1.15pm
