The BBC has announced details of a new arts documentary festival that will take place as part of the Glasgow International Festival.

Art Screen will showcase arts documentary films from around the world and include highlights from the BBC archive.

The films will be shown in two of Glasgow’s art spaces - the Glasgow Film Theatre and Centre for Contemporary Arts - from April 10-13, 2014.

The four-day programme will include screenings of documentaries on art forms including visual arts, architecture, music and photography alongside accompanying events and discussions.

BBC presenter Kirsty Wark and art historian Tim Marlow will chair interviews and participate in panel discussions offering conversational sessions across the four-day festival.

The event will include Arts in the Archive, a strand dedicated to arts footage in the BBC’s own archive.

Art Screen is a national partnership created by the BBC and delivered in collaboration with Glasgow International, British Council, frieze, LUX, Glasgow Film, CCA and BFI. It is supported by Creative Scotland.

Jonty Claypole, head of arts for BBC Productions, described Art Screen as “a place for audiences, artists and film makers alike to be inspired by a selection of some of the best arts documentaries from around the world.”

The full programme will be revealed on March 19.
