Wednesday 4 February, 2015 – 6 p.m.

Glasgow Film Festival runs from 18 February – 1 March 2015.

Start Glasgow Film Festival early with the Scottish premiere of
Shaun The Sheep Movie!

★★★★ ‘Generous, inclusive and genuinely inspiring’ – The Guardian
★★★★ ‘Purely charming... tickles the same neglected folds of your brain as

Chaplin, Keaton, and Laurel and Hardy.’ – The Telegraph

Calling all parents, animation fans and comedy lovers! As a sneak preview of their new Modern Families strand, Glasgow Film Festival is delighted to host the Scottish Premiere of Aardman Animations’ Shaun The Sheep Movie, on Wednesday 4 February, in the company of the film’s directors Mark Burton and Richard Starzack, who will answer questions after the screening.

Based on the hit television show, this all-new film follows what happens when Shaun decides to take a day off and have some fun. Pretty soon he finds himself in bother as a mix up with a caravan and a very steep hill leads to his farmer being forced to leave the farm. Soon it is up to Shaun and his flock to travel to the big city and mount a daring rescue for their farmer. From Aardman Animations, the team behind Wallace and Gromit, this special preview screening, earlier than the main Glasgow Film Festival programme, is a must-see treat for the whole family, and a lead-in to the festival’s brand new Modern Families strand of family-friendly cinema.

The film will screen simultaneously at the GFT on Rose Street and at Odeon At The Quay, at 6pm on Wednesday 4 February, and is 1hr 25 minutes long. The Q&A with the directors will take place at the GFT screening.

CCA – Presentation and Discussion

Saturday 21 February, 2015 - 4 p.m.

Since the heyday of shoulder pads in the 1940s, costume has been used to illustrate female power on screen.

But when Sarah Lund’s woolly jumpers hit the headlines, did perceptions shift? A panel of guests will discuss wearable power and explore what this means today. The session will be illustrated by a presentation from students at the University of Edinburgh’s MSc Film Exhibition and Curation course.

Free tickets available on the day at CCA. Max 2 per person.
