Glasgow Music & Film Festival presents
Fri 15 Feb 2013 | 7pm | £8.50/£6.50
A stellar line-up of Scottish musicians, from Eugene Kelly and Emma Pollock to Withered Hand and Rachel Sermanni, feature in this beautiful collection of stories told in song, shot during the night in locations across Scotland. This is a snapshot of an entire nation at its most vulnerable and revealing, inspired by what takes place between the hours of midnight and 4am. This film is part of the Whatever Gets You Through the Night project created by award-winning director Cora Bissett, acclaimed playwright David Greig and musicians Swimmer One.
Followed by live performances from Rachel Sermanni, Swimmer One, Bigg Taj & Wounded Knee plus more to be announced.
The film will then be touring across Scotland, taking in Banchory, Ullapool, Hawick, Mull, Kirkcaldy and Dundee. Tickets are available from individual venues.

Co-curated by the film fanatics at Glasgow Film Festival and the music buffs at The Arches, the Glasgow Music and Film Festival a mini-festival within Glasgow Film Festival, celebrating the long, strange and wonderful relationship between music and cinema with an exciting programme of performances, rockumentaries, live soundtrack events and AV explorations. Take a look at the full GMFF event programme here or follow them on Facebook for news, competitions and more announcements.
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
