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 part of the UK in Japan 2019-20 bilateral campaign, a partnership between British Council Scotland and Creative Scotland. Supported by project partners Toyama Institute of Glass Art, Toyama Glass Art Museum and Museum of Arts and Design, New York.
The festival launches on the 20 March running through out 2021 with a scheduled programme running across the international partners with a hybrid approach of physical and virtual presentation.
