We’re excited to launch a new phase of Glasgow Film At Home with the addition of the Library – a curated collection of recent films you may have missed. These films will all stay on Glasgow Film At Home for at least three months (with a couple of exceptions which are noted) and are available to rent at a cheaper price than films in the New Releases section.
We have two key aims for the Library. Firstly we want to bring attention to recent indie films that we love and think deserve to be discovered. With so many films available on so many digital platforms, we want to take the opportunity to do some of the work for you; each of these films is hand-picked by real live film lovers in the Glasgow Film team. Many of these films have previously played in GFT, either as part of Glasgow Film Festival or in our year-round programme.
The other aim of the Library is to provide another way for you to support us and the work we do. When you choose to pay and watch a film on Glasgow Film at Home, a portion of the money is going directly towards our work as a non-profit educational charity, furthering the cause of independent cinema in Scotland. Some of the income also goes to the independent distributors who do such great work in finding these films and making them available to us. Think of Glasgow Film at Home as GFT screen 4, except here you get to define your own leg-room.
