With over 35,000 admissions to over 350 events, Glasgow Film Festival 2012 was the fastest-growing and third-biggest film festival in the country. The 2013 Festival - the ninth edition - begins on Valentine's Day and runs until Academy Award night on 24 February. Glasgow Film Festival's growing popularity is anchored in the programme's wide range of individual strands that target specific areas of interest, bringing together themed screenings, special guests and an outstanding range of citywide tie-in events to reach a huge spectrum of audiences. For 2013, the Festival offers three new strands: James Cagney: Top of the World, Ma! is a retrospective of one of Hollywood's original tough guys; Buena Onda: New Brazilian Cinema is a celebration of exciting new voices and award-winning achievements in Brazilian cinema; while Game Cats Go Miaow! is curated by Robert Florence and celebrates Scotland's passion for gaming. Our annual favourites include Glasgow Youth Film Festival (3 - 13 February); Glasgow Short Film Festival (7 - 10 February); Great Scots; Crossing the Line, our experimental visual art strand; Fashion in Film; Glasgow Music & Film Festival, and FrightFest.
Tickets go on sale on 17 January 2013.
