Here’s the events that have been announced and when you can buy tickets.

Lost In France
O2 ABC / Tue 21 Feb (Doors 18.45)

Directed by Irish talent Niall McCann, Lost In France explores the rise of Scotland’s independent music scene in the 90s, led by cult label Chemikal Underground, The Delgados, Bis, Mogwai and Arab Strap. An intimate film exploring friendship, creativity and music, the screening will be followed by an exclusive live music performance to be simulcast across the UK, with Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert, Emma Pollock and Paul Savage (The Delgados) re-uniting on-stage for one night only.

Dangerous Dames

The GFF17 retrospective will celebrate the big screen’s femme fatales. All screenings in this strand are free to the public, giving audiences the perfect excuse to reacquaint themselves with some women behaving badly.

True North: New Canadian Cinema

150 years of Canada’s confederation will be celebrated with a selection of strikingly original new and rediscovered voices in independent Canadian cinema. Often unsung in British cinemas, the festival will showcase all the exciting diversity in Canadian film-making from thrilling new talents to stunning animation.
