Glasgow Film Festival has, in a ‘festival within the festival’ offshoot, announced a quartet of indie music-themed screenings.
On Saturday 11th February (at 21.00 in the CCA Theatre) there’s a showing of Douglas Hart‘s music videos and a discussion with the director Hart was a founder member of The Jesus and Mary Chain, and in the 80s shot videos for the likes of My Bloody Valentine and The Stone Roses. More recently his output of over 100 short films has included work with the Horrors, so his programme is not yet finalised, but will include his football documentary ‘Brazil 1970: The Sexiest Kick-Off’ which has music by Primal Scream.
