Southside Filmmakers Award 2013 Winner

You will probably have already seen that the winner of the Southside Filmmakers Award 2013 was announced on Sunday at the Glad Cafe and via twitter and facebook.

The winner was Bird in the Hand from Cup of Gold Productions. A Bird in the Hand is a joint Scottish/Irish production which brings us the kooky story of love and friendship about a young man, Alan, who is not your average man.

Echoes of Cinema City | Documentary | 8′ | Directed by Gordon Ballantyne & Antonia Bain | Made with the help and support of Joss Walsh, Angela Davison and 55 Degrees

At its peak, Glasgow had over 23 fully working cinema organs. Now there is only one. For an entire generation the sound of the cinema was that of the cinema organ and if it wasn’t for the team of volunteers at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall that sound would be lost forever. To understand their passion and their work is to see Glasgow’s cinema heritage. Ian McNaught gives us a tour of the organ’s home and how it has been incorporated into the entire building filling it with pipes, machinery and wonderful sounds.

View a trailer for the film here.
