We will be hosting events throughout the year to inspire, connect and inform filmmakers across Scotland. For now, these will be virtual, and open to all.

Short Circuit Film Club

Short Circuit Film Club is a monthly film event followed by a networking opportunity.

Each month will feature a specially curated screening of short films on the Glasgow Film At Home Platform – local, national and international – chosen to inspire and connect our Scottish filmmaking community. Screenings will be accompanied by an event to give you a chance to meet other filmmakers, discuss the films, share advice and be inspired!

The next edition will take place between January 25th and 28th, featuring five award-winning shorts from Galway Film Fleadh’s 2020 programme. This curated programme features a mix of drama, documentary and animation, and exemplify the wealth of filmmaking talent working in Ireland right now.

This month’s Film Club event will take place on Thursday 28 January at 4pm. A few of the Irish filmmakers will be joining us to discuss their films, and network with other filmmakers working in Scotland. While the Film Club discussion will be centered on the Irish film programme, this event also offers all attendees a chance to network in a casual and safe digital setting.  Please register for the event on Zoom here.

Every film has the option for closed captions and the event can also be live captioned.
