Cinemap: mapping the Southside through film 23-25 May 2014

After three successful years of running a film festival in May Southside Film Festival has decided to do something different in May 2014!

Southside Film Festival presents Cinemap, a screening event over the weekend of 23-25 May, 2014 in various Southside locations.


Cinemap is inspired by last year’s ALBERT DRIVE project that asked the people of Pollokshields to meet their neighbours through a series of artistic commissions exploring the central question ‘who is my neighbour’? 

Cinemap will screen a number of ALBERT DRIVE films including work by Basharat Khan and Abigail Howkins which explore the theme of neighbour but also highlight the importance of local, of community and of bringing people together. 
  • Cinemap is looking for more films that explore the wider Southside community and the themes of COMMUNITY and LOCAL. We are looking for films that have imaginative approaches to these themes. 
  • We are also looking for new work made in Southside Glasgow and/or made by Southside filmmakers that has not screened at previous Southside Film Festivals. 
  • We are also inviting filmmakers to submit site specific work that responds to and relate to the Cinemap screening spaces- Shawlands ArcadeThe Glad CafeGovanhill BathsNew Victoria Gardens and East Pollokshields Quad and The Tramway. What would you screen in a shopping centre, a cafe, a swimming pool, an allotment, a green space in a tenement back court and a multi arts venue? 
How to Submit: download a submission form and return to southsidefilmfest@gmail.com along with film
Submission Deadline: (9am, Monday 14 April, 2014)
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 9AM TUES 22 APRIL, 2014

Cinemap is a partnership project lead by Southside Film Festival with the ALBERT DRIVE project, Art Village, The Glad Cafe, Govanhill Baths, New Victoria Gardens, East Pollokshields Quad, The Tramway and filmmakers Abigail Howkins and Basharat Khan.
