World Film Locations: Glasgow explores Scotland’s biggest city and the many locations in which its films are viewed, set, and shot, taking in the important moments and movements in its rich cinematic history. Contrasting the historic with the contemporary, and social realism with drama, World Film Locations: Glasgow seeks to discover the city’s culture, character, and comedy. Essays cover a variety of topics including a background of Glasgow’s cinema-going and the city’s picture houses, the evolution of Scots comedy, and Glasgow a filmmaker’s city for grassroots and underground filmmakers as well as big Hollywood productions. We look at interpretations of the city from homegrown talent and a European cinema stance. 38 films are featured from classics like Gregory’s Girl and Loach’s Carla’s Song to cult hits like Trainspotting. Bollywood is represented, alongside European titles and grim Scots realism like Sweet Sixteen, My Name is Joe, and Red Road and new titles including Fast Romance, Perfect Sense, and NEDs.
