The Commonwealth Film & Theatre Festival: The official programme


The Commonwealth Film & Theatre Festival’s official selection of films and theatre performances along with all the events and activities surrounding them is now available online. Check also at various locations around Glasgow for the print edition of the programme.

From the 17th till the 27th of July The Commonwealth Film & Theatre Festival aims to bring cinema and theatre lovers from all the local communities together in order to celebrate the cultural diversity in the city, host of this year’s commonwealth games.

With films from the commonwealth nations around the globe, the daily screenings will take you from the urban environment of London’s suburbs in Sixteen to the most sacred Indian traditions in The Lunchbox and from the Zanzibar’s women soccer clubs in Zanzibar Soccer Queens to a the romantic story of two gay men who struggle for their rights in conservative society of Nassau.

The theatre performances shine the spotlight on Glasgow’s people and places through audio tours of Kelvigrove Park and the Merchant City, a piece of visual theatre by Vocal Point theatre based on conversations with regulars at a soup kitchen and an immersive performance by Sarah Bradley that asks: “What can we do with the world?”.
