Star-studded line-up for Glasgow Film Festival

The festival will feature more than 300 premieres, screenings and events between 21 February and 4 March.

Karen Gillan will hit the red carpet for the world premiere of her directorial debut, The Party's Just Beginning. David Tennant and director Lynne Ramsay will also be showing off their latest work. Hollywood actor Bill Pullman will also be dropping in for the UK premiere of his new movie The Ballad of Lefty Brown and will talk about his extensive career.

Gillan, now a Hollywood star thanks to her roles in films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, directed and wrote the script for her film as well as playing the lead role. Filmed in Glasgow and her home city of Inverness, The Party's Just Beginning, is described as a fiercely honest tale of loss, grief and survivor's guilt.

Festival-favourite David Tennant is being welcomed back for the European premiere of his new rom-com You, Me and Him.

We Need to Talk About Kevin director Lynne Ramsay will return home to Glasgow to introduce the Scottish premiere of her new feature You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix.

In total, the 14th annual festival will feature more than 330 separate events and screenings, showcasing more than 180 films from 51 countries. Six world premieres and seven European premieres feature in the line-up.
