Grant Page, star of Stunt Rock (dir. Brian Trenchard-Smith, 1980)

I’m blogging for Glasgow Film Festival again this year (over at their website, here). The main festival runs from Wednesday 18/02 to Sunday 01/03, with an Opening Gala of Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young. We’re taking a slightly different approach with the blogging this year, so most of my work will be done before the festival starts, meaning I can concentrate on Matchbox Cineclub (we have a film in the programme this year, Stunt Rockand we’re hosting an alternative opening party at The Squid & Whale for folks missing the sold-out Opening Gala), both days of FrightFest and generally seeing as many films as humanly possible. For the official GFF blog, I’ll be doing picks of the programme, previews of the films nominated for GFF’s inaugural Audience Award and interviews with the GFF team.

Here’s what’s been posted so far (I’ll keep this list updated as we go):

And here’s the trailer for Matchbox’s contribution, a special free-but-ticketed, director-endorsed* screening of Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Stunt Rock:

* Trenchard-Smith called it, ‘A great movie to see after a wee dram’, and hopes everyone at the screening has a great time.**
