A selection of cinematic gems will be shown alongside live music sets at a new drive-in event near Glasgow.
Kicking off on July 30, Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) and Electric Frog are joining forces to host the Sound & Vision Drive-In, allowing people to share their love of music and film together safely, even amid Covid-19 restrictions.
Taking place at Glasgow Airport’s Direct Parking, people will be able to enjoy the shows from the comfort of their own cars.
The festivities will be held over two weeks at the end of this month.
Fans will be treated to a handpicked selection of the most iconic music movies and GFF cult classics as well as a few exclusive performances from some of the city’s most loved DJs.
The series of special collaborations will kick off with a showing of the Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think, with Glasgow’s techno titans Slam playing an exclusive live performance beforehand.
Movie-lovers will have the chance to bask in the hedonistic glamour of 70s New York with Matt Tyrnauer’s Studio 54, hit up an old-school 90’s rave with 2019’s cult favourite Beats, and dance to Purple Rain’s classic soundtrack with live sets and introductions from DJs including Optimo, Gerry Lyons and Melting Pot.
The Drive-In will also be showing some lesser-known GFF gems, huge blockbusters, cult comedies and family favourites. The multi-award-winning Big Feed will be providing snacks.
Allison Gardner, Glasgow Film CEO and Co-Director of Glasgow Film Festival, said: “Our film selection for these events represents some of the very best titles in horror, comedy and family entertainment. There’s a great mix that draws on our knowledge of what audiences in Glasgow and Scotland love, with a sprinkling of exclusive music moments to lift our spirits.
“What makes Sound and Vision Drive-In unique is that it’s brought to you by two organisations committed to promoting independent music and cinema, which is particularly important given the current situation. Supporting our local, independent, cultural hubs means they’ll continue to exist, and be there to provide all the great entertainment and wonderful memories that watching a film, or a music gig brings.
“It’s been a long, hard few months for everyone and these events offer the chance to get together and enjoy being thrilled, amused and inspired again.”
