GFT is currently undergoing an exciting new redevelopment.
Unfortunately, that means that there will be no dedicated school screenings at GFT for the remainder of this academic year.
However, over the summer term our wonderful partners at Platform are hosting screenings to celebrate REFUGEE WEEK.

Persepolis is an emotionally powerful, dramatically enthralling autobiographical animated film about a precocious and outspoken Iranian girl who grows up during the Islamic Revolution.
Optimistic about her future, yet shaped indelibly by her past, Marjane finally has to make the heartbreaking decision as to where it is she truly belongs.
Persepolis will be preceded by a screening of Lest We Forget: World War One – Refugees Then and Now
Scottish Refugee Council’s new arts and heritage project ‘Lest We Forget: World War One – Refugees Then and Now’ brings together refugees and local Scots to discover and document the heritage of the arrival and experiences of Belgian refugees in Scotland during the First World War.
Discover parallel stories of refugees living in Scotland today through this empowering and insightful documentary film and exhibition.
