FILM FESTIVAL | 07.01.23 - 28.01.23

Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival is dedicated to presenting a selection of new films pivoting around the  medium of glass. The festival showcases a cross section of international diverse and engaging series of short films 

curated and directed by female identified and non-binary filmmakers using glass as the predominant feature. 

GMTF is a microcosm to explore the human relationship with glass and film, exploring dynamics with the physical and environmental context, together with the human and social context.


The amalgamation of material and ephemeral, glass and video, are at the heart of the film festival. Exploring the stories of how art is made, how artists survive, how they think and work, and what makes creativity our most important skill.


Glass, Meet the Future Film Festival at North Lands Creative is supported by Creative Scotland and in collaboration with Shanghai Museum of Glass.

Our Film Festival has now finished for 2023
