The Glasgow Film Festival heads southside in 2016, with special events including a site-specific outing at Tramway.

Tickets are now on sale for the festival, running February 17-28, including a number of bigger and bolder events, from rolling boulders with Indiana Jones at Kelvingrove to the world premiere of Where You’re Meant To Be at the Barrowlands.

And with the Turner Prize putting Pollokshields venue Tramway on the map, GFF will return for the first time since 2012 for an exhibition, performance and screening for This is Now: Film and Video After Punk (1978-85).

That includes a series of digitally remastered archive films by artists including John Maybury, Grayson Perry, Cordelia Swanna and Jill Westwood, as well as a night celebrating punk and new wave music.

Allison Gardner, GFF co-director, said: “We’re very proud to announce that our first few events to go on sale this year are such show-stoppers, and that we can pay such great tributes to some of Glasgow’s favourite buildings.”
