Free Shorts Screening + Pre-Festival Party w/ emerging DJs!

World of Film Festival presents a FREE film screening of current international short films followed by music from emerging DJs. The DJs playing after the screening are emerging DJs living in Glasgow. We want to give those artists a chance to play their sets after our screening so people can hang out and chat or have a wee boogie.

The events can be attended separately or together. If you’re running late to the screening, don’t worry: We’ll be happy to see you! It’s short films! You will still be able to watch something fab. Please do come in – nobody will shush you!

We understand some people get anxious or might run late due to a busy schedule/life getting in the way but we warmly welcome you to join us at NICE N SLEAZY anytime between 8-11pm!

Further info regarding short films and DJs will be released soon! Keep your eyes peeled!

Blueprint: Theorem

Blueprint – Scottish Independent Cinema is dedicated to supporting independent Scottish film. Its previous programmes have included BAFTA Scotland, Iris Prize and Oscar winning filmmakers. This September it presents Blueprint: Theorem; a free, pop up festival celebrating Scotland’s truly independent cinema.

For one weekend a selection of these DIY feature films, representing the breadth of ingenuity which has come to define Scotland’s emerging micro budget film industry, will be presented for free. Solution orientated, with a punk rock attitude, making the most of modern digital technologies these filmmakers will write their own pages in the future history of Scottish cinema. Nine films, two days, one free pop-up festival celebrating the ingenuity and hard work of independent Scottish feature length cinema.

This screening takes place in association with Kinning Park Complex‘s Waste Not Want Project which hosts a weekly Pay-What-You-Want Community Meal that intercepts surplus food from supermarkets which is destined for waste and creates nutritious meals for the community. The meal happens every Thursday from 6-8pm.

The Waste Not Want Project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. Since its inception in 2016, the community kitchen at KPC has prevented 67,382kg of CO2 emissions, an amount of carbon emissions equivalent to those released to produce 5 tonnes of beef. Considering the amount of meat the average person eats, this is enough to feed 117 people for a whole year.

Harold and Maude

There has never been a greater love story than that of 20-something suicide obsessed Harold and 80-year-old free spirit Maude. Set to the wondrous sounds of Cat Stevens, and directed so beautifully by Hal Ashby, Harold and Maude is story of lives lived to the fullest, lives hardly lived at all, and love.

Come celebrate the joys and heartache a 60-year age gap romance brings!
