  Glasgow Film Festival 2018
  Braving the weather
  The fourteenth annual Glasgow Film Festival finished on a high this weekend as it celebrated record-breaking attendance and a bumper crop of World Premieres made in Scotland.

Its opening weekend saw top talent such as Karen Gillan, David Tennant, Lynne Ramsay and Imogen Poots grace the GFF red carpet as admissions across the opening seven days were up 9% on 2017. On Saturday 24 February, Glasgow Film Theatre enjoyed 2,276 admissions, a new single day record for the venue outside FrightFest.

The festival team worked tirelessly to ensure that GFF18 remained operational during the Beast From The East storm and ended with a weekend of high-profile guests including Gemma Arterton and Ben Wheatley and sell-out screenings, including the return of the ever-popular FrightFest and the World Premiere of Douglas King's Glasgow-set dystopian rom-com Super November.

Home-grown talent continued to shine as the festival closed tonight with the Gala World Premiere of Felipe Bustos Sierra's rousing documentary Nae Pasaran. The Scottish-made feature tells the incredible true story of the East Kilbride factory workers who defied a dictatorship from the other side of the world by grounding half of Pinochet's air-force in the 1970s.

The workers themselves - Bob Fulton, Stuart Barrie, John Keenan and Robert Somerville - were all in attendance at the World Premiere along with Felipe. At the closing gala, Xavier Legrand's compellingly tense Custody was named the winner of the GFF18 Audience Award - voted for by GFF audiences out of a shortlist of ten festival films by first and second-time directors. Custody will be released in cinemas across the UK from 13 April by Picturehouse Entertainment.
