'Isle of Dogs' to Open Glasgow Film Festival

Isle of Dogs
20th Century Fox

Wes Anderson's stop-motion animated feature will have its U.K. premiere in Scotland on Feb. 21.

Less than two weeks after it has its world premiere on the opening night of the Berlin Film Festival, Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs is going to raise the curtain in Glasgow. 

The stop-motion animation, featuring the voices of Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Jeff Goldblum and many others, will have its U.K. premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival on Feb. 21.

Glasgow, regarded as the U.K.'s third-largest film event, will this year feature a special focus on Ireland, with screenings of the Oscar-tipped animation The Breadwinner from Nora Twomey, plus Aoife McArdle's debut feature, Kissing Candice, and the David Freyne-directed zombie movie The Cured. The festival's Pure Baltic sidebar will show films from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The full festival program will be announced on Jan. 24.

The Glasgow Film Festival runs Feb 21 to March 4.
