Back for a thirteenth time the Glasgow Film Festival is now on until the 26th of February. Taking place over various venues throughout the city the festival offers a wide range of choice whether you’re looking for something: mainstream or art-house, local or international, classic or cult. In addition to screenings film fans can indulge in interactive workshops and discussion panels.

Our top picks:

Family – The Princess Bride ­

What: “a grandfather (Peter Falk) reads a favorite book to his sick grandson (Fred Savage). The book he reads, The Princess Bride by S. Morgenstern, is about the most beautiful woman in the world, the hero who loves her, and the evil prince who says he wants to marry her.” IMDb

Where: Maryhill Burgh Halls

When: 14:00, 25th February

Comedy – Mindhorn

What: “When MI5 Special Operative Bruce Mindhorn was captured in the late 1980s, his eye was replaced by a super-advanced optical lie detector, which meant he could literally “see the truth.” He escaped and fled to the Isle of Man, to recuperate in the island’s temperate microclimate, and today has become the best plain-clothes detective the island has ever seen.” BBC

Where: Glasgow Film Theatre

When: 20th & 21st February

Classic – Dirty Dancing

What: “In 1963, Frances “Baby” Houseman, a sweet daddy’s girl, goes with her family to a resort in upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains. Baby has grown up in privileged surroundings and all expect her to go on to college, join the Peace Corps and save the world before marrying a doctor, just like her father.” IMDb
