Category Archives: Southside Film Fest

Only 24 hours to go!

With less than 24 hours until the festival kicks off, I’m pretty excited about taking part in my first Southside Film Festival! I just came from The Glad Cafe where people are absolutely buzzing the night before it all gets underway. So while quizzers are trying to determine Who played the voice of Jessica Rabbit, I thought I’d essentially steal an idea from the good folk at Top Ten Glasgow Guide and run down some of the things I’m looking forward to over the weekend!

– I love the movie Gosford Park. It’s fantastic. But somehow watching it in a swanky shiny Cineworld or shoving the DVD in my sturdy £9.99 Argos Basic DVD Player (Hey, i could either eat for the month or get a blu-ray player, don’t judge) just doesn’t fit. Now watching it in the picturesque victorian Pollok Park, and being served a two course meal fit for a king afterwards? That sounds right up my street!

– Up until last year, all I knew about Bollywood was the fact Shilpa Shetty from Big Brother used to do some films, until my friend sat me down and made me watch 3 Idiots with Aamir Khan and loved it! So the thought of, this weekend, getting to check out Kuch Kuch Hota Hoi, with some footage shot in the Southside is gonna be a real treat!

– Festivals tend to bring out a great sense of community from people, so I’m looking forward to chatting to new fellow film lovers whether if be over a beer after a film or at a screening before the film starts.

– I’m always a sucker for a good music documentary so I’m excited to see the doc on LCD Sound System from their last gig.

Anyway, What are you looking forward to? What are you going to see? Let us know in the comments! We’ll be blogging throughout the festival letting you know what’s happening. Enjoy!

Press coverage so far

The Southside Film Festival kicks off this Thursday with the film quiz and then a series of film screenings and events over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We’ve already had some great press coverage and publicity, we’ll be updating our website with these details here. Check out the articles below that mention the Southside Film Festival. Including the very kind and supportive motion in the Scottish Parliament by Patrick Harvie

If you’d like to help us spread the word then please send on the flyers and programme links below to interested people.

And check out our promotional films on YouTube for the following venues:

Stay South! @southfilmfest

      Battleship Potemkin

      One of the highlights of the past two festivals have been our screenings at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall in partnership with the Scottish Cinema Organ Trust. These screenings make the most of the fantastic and mighty Wurlitzer organ installed in the halls.

      This time next week we will be screening a Soviet Cinema classic, Battleship Potemkin. It is considered to be one of the best films ever made-in 2011 Total Film said “…nearly 90 years on, Eisenstein’s masterpiece is still guaranteed to get the pulse racing.”

      Sun 19th May, 8pm, doors 7.30pm
      Pollokshaws Burgh Hall.
      Price: £6/£5
      Cert PG, 66 mins, 1925 

      Battleship Potemkin is a dramatised version of the mutiny that occurred in 1905 when the crew of the Russian battleship Potemkin rebelled against their officers of the Tsarist regime. Sergei Eisenstein famously wrote Battleship Potemkin as revolutionist propaganda and to test his idea of montage, his new cinematic language, to produce a strong emotional response in the audience. The most celebrated, and parodied, sequence in the film is of the Odessa steps where a baby’s pram slowly bumps its way down the steps, intercut with harrowing images of the massacre.

      This is a unique opportunity to see this classic film with live musical accompaniment that will bring the film to life. A must for students of cinema and/or Russian history or simply those with an interest in the only remaining cinema organ in Scotland.

      Come down to The Bungo Bar on Thursday May 16th for the third Southside Film Festival Quiz and win yourself some prizes.

      Hello one and all!

      Hello one and all, my name’s Kenny and I’m the newest volunteer to the Southside Film Festival for 2013. I deliberated on whether to start off with a bad movie quote or pun, but I’ve opted for the more sensible option (even though I’ve told you what I was planning anyway, DARN!)…..

      My route into working as a volunteer at the festival has been a unique one. I studied Sociology at university, which by the end felt like I was watching Beverly Hills Cop 3 on repeat, which isn’t a good thing. I then did a postgraduate course in Broadcast Journalism and started a career in television which was a lot of fun. I worked on various TV shows from ‘The Hour’ on STV to quiz shows like BBC’s Eggheads, researching and helping out before coming to the realisation that film was my passion and that’s where I wanted to focus myself. After pleading with the lovely organisers of the Southside Festival to let me be involved, they have opened their arms and accepted me as one of their own. There’s a real community feel to the group of people that are working so hard and passionately to make the festival enjoyable for you guys and gals coming along as well as the staff that will be working throughout the weekend of the festival.

      I’ve lived in the southside a few times throughout the years and I feel like this festival is one of a few times during the year where the southside can embrace and celebrate its community spirit. For one weekend, you don’t need to get the First Bus to Cineworld or hop on the Subway to The Grosvenor, instead you can experience great film in your own back garden. Not literally of course, but you get what I mean.

      We’ll be updating the blog regularly between now and the festival so you can get all the inside scoops on what’s happening with the festival and maybe a sneak peek into what the volunteers are getting up to in the lead up to the big weekend.

      Also, we’re starting to get the programme out into the community so keep an eye out for a copy and see what’s on – or you can just check it out from the comfort of your own sofa, online here.
      If you’re a social media lover then make sure and follow us on Twitter (and get involved in all the chat using the #southsidefilm hashtag) & ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep up-to-date with all things Southside.

      I ♥ SFF’13


      Hello folks, Laura here! I’m one of the new volunteers with the Southside Film Festival & I’m here to tell you all how super-excited I am to get involved with all the goings on in 2013. 

      Having studied Film many moons ago, worked in events & volunteered with various other film festivals, I’ve now made a complete U-turn and been working in a completely unrelated field . My love for film however, has never waned – I’ve been keen to get back involved with the industry in some respect and the Southside Film Festival has offered a wonderful opportunity to work alongside some of the most amazingly talented & passionate film fans this side of the Clyde. I have been absolutely bowled over by the enthusiasm of the team of volunteers I’ve met so far who are offering up their time & skills to get involved and help bring film back to the Sou’side . 

      That very distinct Southside community feel seems to have filtered through into the organisation process so far with everybody mucking in & working hard to help make the 2013 festival  a huge success. 

      We’ll be looking to update the blog as often as possible over the next few weeks with all the goings on from behind the scenes in the lead up to the festival, so keep checking back to see what kind of fun we’re all getting up to. 

      In the meantime, keep yer peepers peeled for a copy of this years programme which we started distributing in & around the southside yesterday – you can also check it out online here.

      Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (and get involved in all the chat using the #southsidefilm hashtag) & ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep upto date with all things Southside.


      2013 Film Festival Programme

      We picked up our programme from Forward Graphics yesterday and have started to distribute them around the festival venues as well as other cafes and shops in the Southside.

      An excerpt from the introduction by festival director, Karen O’Hare: “We continue to create ‘pop up’ cinemas around the Southside so you can watch films in a pub, cafe, museum, garden, community hall… and site specific screenings add to the viewing experience – watch a documentary about a photojournalist in a photography club, a film about caravanning in a scout hall and music documentary in a gig venue . The mighty Wurlitzer Cinema Organ is back with live accompaniment to Soviet classic, Battleship Potemkin. And alongside the films there is a filmmaking workshop for teenagers, an animation workshop for kids and the film quiz is back!”

      You can view our programme online here.

      We’ve also created this at-a-glance guide for the 2013 Southside Film Festival:

      New volunteers

      We had a great meeting this afternoon with new volunteers for the May festival. They were full of good ideas about the festival and plans for using the blog more.

      So in the next couple of weeks you’ll be hearing from more voices on the blog. They’ll be posting about why they’ve decided to volunteer with the Southside Film Festival, news from behind the scenes information about the planning and preparations for a festival and then over the festival weekend itself.

        What do you mean I’m funny? Are you Sarah Connor? Is it safe? How do you solve a problem like Maria?
        These are among the many movie questions you won’t be asked at the inaugural Southside Film Festival Film Quiz!
        You don’t need a degree in film studies, just a love of movies and an overwhelming desire to have a fun night out. Oh, and £5 for the entrance fee.
        You got to ask yourself one question.
        Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
