Rough Cuts would like to dedicate this issue of The List to the memory of Shirley Gilmour (pictured). Gilmour was one of the cornerstones of the Filmhouse throughout the 1990s where her tireless administration of everything from the day to day running of the place to the Friends of Filmhouse scheme was crucial to the development of art house cinema in Scotland. A former life model at the Leith School of Art and generally joyous person, Shirley lost her battle with cancer recently. RIP, you will be much missed Shirley.
Glasgay is on its way with another interesting selection of gay themed movies. Rough Cuts would like to recommend a couple for you. Queens is a very enjoyable comedy set around Spain’s first mass gay wedding and Argentinean sex comedy El Favor is also worth checking out. Best of all however is Tim Kirkman’s lovingly structured triptych drama Loggerheads. www.glasgay.co.uk for more info.
Psychotronic Cinema returns in October with a screening of Argento’s Suspiria at Filmhouse (12 Oct; at GFT on 1 Nov). The fantastic new programme includes Maria Bava’s Danger: Diabolik and blindingly good spaghetti western Django. Clear your diaries people.
