image for Glasgow Film Festival

The 2011 Glasgow Film Festival opens today and pundits are keenly awaiting the latest batch of cinematic product from some of Scotland's finest young film makers.

With over 200 films being shown over the next week, there will be ample opportunity, however, for some older projects to be revisited.

Top of the Must See List is likely to be "My Five Minutes in a Glesga Shipyard", which was not only directed by Sean Connery but also features the last documented occasion when the 007 star spoke without a mid Atlantic accent.

Another anticipated big draw is "Weegies and Squeegees", a series of no holds barred interviews with some of the many Glaswegians who worked as cleaners in the Sixties.

The last potential crowd puller is "Slash and Burnie", a pictorial documentation of some of the smaller individuals who were in the forefront of the gang culture that was such a feature of Glasgow in the Sixties.

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
