Cloud Atlas is to have it's UK premiere at the Glasgow Film Festival.

The unusual film - based on the best-selling novel by David Mitchell - boasts a stellar cast, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw and Susan Sarandon and was partly filmed in the Scottish city.

The 11 day festival will host six world and 57 UK premieres among its 368 screenings in the city, starting on February 14.

Stoker, starring Nicole Kidman, and Welcome To The Punch, starring James McAvoy and Peter Mullan, are also among the films being shown for the first time to a UK audience during the festival.

Allan Hunter, co-director of the festival, said: "GFF has grown into a massive celebration of every aspect of the moving image. We all spend part of our lives watching films, playing games or catching up with television but there is still nothing to match sharing the experience with fellow enthusiasts, meeting the filmmakers and finding fresh inspiration.

"We are extremely proud of an ambitious 2013 programme that promises unforgettable moments in venues all across the city."

Workshops, lectures, discussions and "mini festivals", such as Frightfest which focuses on horror films, make up the programme.
