Alan Jones, co-director, said today: “What a privilege for Horror Channel FrightFest to return to the open arms of the Glasgow Film Festival. Each of our forensically assembled line-up has been chosen on the basis it has something new and unique to offer, something we feel worth championing to our discerning Scottish audiences.”

The Glasgow Film Festival runs 15-26 February. The full line-up hasn’t been announced yet, but Andrew Scott and David Tennant films bookend the festival.
