Physical Impossibility are teaming up with Glasgow Film Festival again, to bring Anti-Villains to their 2018 Behind The Scenes strand! Our team of six invited guests will each present on the best-worst baddies, the loveable scum of the cinematic earth. Our contributors this year are:
Claire Biddles (Sad Girl Cinema)
Megan Mitchell (Matchbox Cineclub)
Craig McClure (Physical Impossibility)
Jessica McGoff (Video Essayist)
Sean Welsh (Physical Impossibility, Matchbox Cineclub)
Anti-Villains is the latest event Physical Impossibility has produced for GFF, following GFF16’s Bad Romance and GFF17’s Patsies! Like its predecessors, Anti-Villains is a response to GFF’s retrospective strand, this year dedicated to Rebel Heroes. The brochure blurb explains it all:
If you’re tired of Rebel Heroes, try an Anti-Villain! While GFF celebrates the former, Physical Impossibility considers the latter – the love-to-hate them, so-bad-they’re-good, well-meaning scum of the cinematic earth. They’re the charismatic antidote to the basic brave. They’re the pitiable something-to-proves versus the got-it-all-worked outs. They’re the misunderstood altruists working towards the greater good, defeated by the short-sighted smart-arses. And they’re any time Alan Rickman wears a beard. Join Physical Impossibility’s cadre of experts as they discuss all the times you wish the good guys had lost.
Anti-Villains, 6.30pm 22/02/18 at CCA Glasgow.
This is a free but ticketed show. Free tickets will only be available on the day from the venue where the event is taking place, when the CCA box office opens. First come, first served (maximum 2 tickets per person).
This event will be BSL-interpreted.
