For All, e-book published by Glasgow Film Theatre featuring Glasgow writers



Glasgow Film Theatre is excited to announce the publication of For All, a free e-book exploring equality and featuring new work by Glasgow based writers, animators and musicians.
Funded by Creative Scotland’s Promoting Equalities Programme (PEP), and published by Ringwood Publishing, the book is the end product of GFT’s ‘For All’ project, which began in 2013. The project’s aim was to explore equalities and access within GFT, and cinema in general. Writers were commissioned to produce new work inspired by what the notion of ‘for all’ meant to them. The writers are:

Alison Irvine – writer and facilitator
David Galletly
illustrator and animator

Each piece of work is accompanied by an animation by illustrator David Galletly, and music from The Pictish Trail and Jonnie Common. Members of GFT staff responded to the themes raised in each piece of writing, and questions were posed to audiences, inviting them to join the discussion. The publication combines these responses to create an interactive conversation around equality and change.Glasgow Film Theatre publishes free For All e-book featuring new writing from:  

The e-book will be available to download on the GFT website at, and at from Wednesday 29 April.
‘Cinema For All’ was adopted as a motto for Glasgow Film Theatre in the late 1980s, and the production of this e-book and its availability free of charge is an attempt to communicate this philosophy, and the questions and answers it generates, to as wide an audience as possible. Paperback copies of the publication will also be available in libraries across Glasgow, as well as in GFT and other cultural organisations in the city.
GFT hopes the project will inspire further conversation about equalities in cinema, and what it means for cinema to be ‘for all’, as well as encouraging audiences to think about the role cinema plays in society.
