Landscape in Artists’ Films

14 Jun 2011 – 4 Jul 2011 (Every Tuesday at 18:30)

Glasgow Film Theatre invites you to a four-week course Space is the Place: Landscape in Artists’ Films.

Landscape has long held a fascination for the avant- garde. This course examines how British filmmakers such as William Raban, Chris Welsby, Emily Richardson, Andrew Kötting and Patrick Keiller have gleaned images directly from the landscape of their surroundings and incorporated them creatively into the fabric of their films. Led by Aimee Mollaghan.

The course comprises four illustrated seminars and discussions accompanied by key readings held in the GFT Learning space.

Full details on the course or please pop in to GFT / call box office on 0141 332 6535 to book a place.
