Glasgow Film Festival is the fastest-growing film event in the UK, attracting audiences of over 34,000 in 2011. The 8th Festival runs from 16–26 February 2012 and will take place in a wide range of locations across the city.
The trailer will need to encapsulate the spirit of Glasgow and that this is a dynamic, audience-focussed film festival, taking place in many venues across the city with lots of exciting moving image events and film screenings. Our audiences vary from toddlers to the elderly and the advert needs to be accessible and understood by the majority of people. We’re looking for something innovative which looks and sounds great. We don’t want to be too prescriptive and would like to hear your ideas!
Here are links to last year’s Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) and Glasgow Short Film Festival (GSFF) trailers to give you an idea of what’s been done before (very different from each other!):
