Talking Shorts is delighted to present you to Glasgow Short Film Festival’s brand-new podcast, available here, on the festival's website and on all major podcast platforms.
In the approach to GSFF 2021 the festival will be releasing eleven episodes. Nine episodes feature conversations between the previous winners of the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film and a member of that year's jury. Glasgow Short Podcast will also bring you a conversation between the curators and some of the filmmakers of the strand Barbed Wire Love: Artists, Filmmakers and their North of Ireland Troubles, and a summary of the whole festival programme, featuring various members of the festival team and their guest curators.
GSFF's 2016 Bill Douglas winner, 'A Short Guide to Re-Entry', follows a man newly released from prison. He's told he needs a job and a place in the community, but fitting in isn't always that easy. In the latest podcast episode, listen to director Anwar Boulifa in conversation with 2016 juror and film producer Ohna Falby.
The podcast is produced by Halina Rifai from Glasgow Podcart and A Sonic Hug, with music by Lewis den Hertog.
