Past Screenings

Past ‘Pop up’ Screenings 2011-2017

Outside the annual festival we put on occasional film screenings and events in different Southside venues. Here are details of some of our past screenings:

2017

Scrooged (Cert 12, 1 hr 41mins, 1988)

Tues 5 Dec | The Glad Cafe, 8pm (doors 7.30pm), £8/£6

In this modern take on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Bill Murray stars as Frank Cross, a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Claire Phillips (Karen Allen).

But after firing a staff member, Eliot Loudermilk (Bobcat Goldthwait), on Christmas Eve, Frank is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past.

Directed by Richard Donner who also directed The Goonies.
Also starring Carol Kane and Robert Mitchum.

The End of the Game (Cert 18, 70mins, 2017)
Wed 22 November | The Glad Cafe, 8pm (doors 7.30pm), £8/£6

A bizarre journey to Africa with a vegan filmmaker and a big game hunter.

Committed vegan, David Graham Scott, follows old colonial relic Guy Wallace as he prepares to go on his last big game hunt and fulfil his ambition to bag a fearsome cape buffalo. It’s Guy’s last chance to relive his glory days in the African bush and finally lay down his guns.

The oddball relationship of Scott and Wallace is the central drive of the film as the director explores the ethics of big game hunting and even questions his own animal rights stance when lured in by the thrill of the hunt.

Guy Wallace lives in a ramshackle caravan on a barren moor in the northern highlands of Scotland. He sits surrounded by memories of the past: a past that includes going patrols with the King’s African Rifles, periods as a mercenary in the turbulent post-colonial phase and as a tracker for big game hunters in Kenya and Tanzania.

Filmmaker David Graham Scott lives near the old eccentric in the Caithness moors. He’s built a solid relationship with the man he often refers to as ‘Sir’ Guy and that will be fully explored within both the badlands of Caithness and the South African bush.

The End of the Game is a POV director led narrative questioning the ethics of game hunting and built around the oddball coupling of a vegan and hunter.

Director David Graham Scott will join us for an introduction to the film and a Q&A after the film. Don’t miss it!

MURIEL’S WEDDING   | FRI 10 MARCH | CCA | 8PM| £8/£6 http://www.wegottickets.com/southsidefilm

Clydebank Women’s Aid, Glasgow Women’s Aid & Southside Film presents
MURIEL’S WEDDING                       (Cert: 12, 105 mins, 1994)

Socially awkward Muriel Heslop (Toni Collette) wants nothing more than to get married. Unfortunately, due to her oppressive politician father (Bill Hunter), Muriel has never even been on a date. Ostracised by her friends in small town Australia, Muriel runs into fellow outcast Rhonda Epinstalk (Rachel Griffiths) and they decide to move to Sydney. In the big city, Muriel changes her name and begins to re-design her life to match her fantasies.

Nominated for Best Screenplay BAFTA and Best Performance Golden Globe for Toni Colette when it was first released in 1994, MURIEL’S WEDDING is a tragicomic classic that is about more than just weddings and ABBA songs. You may remember the as hilariously funny and it is, but this film will also make you cry with its realistic portrayal of domestic and emotional abuse in Muriel’s family and of women’s lives and friendships.

Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwkCIpLMZBw

Preceded by a short film about Women’s Aid GETTING OVER THE FEAR made in 1986 by Scottish Women’s Aid and followed by a Q&A about the depiction of domestic abuse in MURIEL’S WEDDING.

Please note: This is a Women Only event to mark International Women’s Day and is open to all all women. This event is a fundraiser for Clydebank Women’s Aid and Glasgow Women’s Aid.
