Running from February 14th to the 24th, the 2013 installment of the increasingly popular Glasgow Film Festival marks its ninth incarnation. Advertised as a festival “for the people”, Gff tends to stray from the red carpet approach and curation-heavy feel of its local(-ish) cousin, June’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, though it does have various themed strands and a few UK and European premieres. Mainly, it is a chance for Scottish audiences to get an advanced look at some incoming 2013 highlights, as well as acclaimed festival fare both with and without planned UK distribution.

Befitting of the Valentine’s Day launch, the festival’s opening gala screening is the UK premiere of French romantic comedy Populaire. Directed by Régis Roinsard, the late 1950s-set film stars Romain Duris, Déborah François and Bérénice Bejo. Closing the festival is the European premiere of Joss Whedon’s take on Much Ado About Nothing. Shot »
