24-27 September, 11am-6pm Bankhill Ice House FREE entry
In Cave Exits, the visual archetype of the labyrinth turns into a circuit board for our lost, anxious feelings, allowing for expression beyond mere hardware. Immerse yourself in NY artist Peter Burr's video game-inspired installation. Cave Exits is sponsored by Simpsons Malt.
The Reagan Shorts
24-27 September, 11am-6pm The Main Guard FREE entry

25 September, 7pm The Maltings Theatre & Cinema
The Guardian declared Tangerines the one film to watch this week - what better place to watch it at than BFMAF! This quietly powerful story aptly resonates with many world conflicts. "Cinema is a fraud" comments one character. Yet at times, it can feel more real than fact.
Abdul & Hamza
26 September, 2pm The Maltings Theatre & Cinema
In this absolutely absorbing and intriguing film, two Somali refugees hide in an abandoned house amongst the mountains on the Serbia-Romania border. Be sure to catch this politically resonant and beautiful film.
