With the easing of restrictions and the glorious return of cinemas it will, once again, be a hybrid festival with online screenings available after the successful launch of the digital platform, “Glasgow At Home”.
The retrospective will feature some standout films of the year including Lawrence of Arabia, Cape Fear, Dr No and also To Kill A Mockingbird.
Allan Hunter, Gff Co-Director, said: “We’ve chosen 1962 as our focus because it is a year bursting with great films and landmark performances. Winds Of Change: Cinema In ‘62 reflects that and will allow audiences to see a fantastic selection of free films including Oscar-winning performances from Anne Bancroft and Gregory Peck, the first appearance of Sean Connery’s James Bond.”
The 18th annual festival will run from March 2nd-13th and will again be partnering with cinemas across the UK.
