The films will be screening on a loop 10am-4pm on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th so pop down anytime-film programme starts at 10am and programme is 87mins long, running in the order listed above. The films are not BBFC certified and age advise is PG but there is some swearing in one of the films -The Divided Self- so best to keep the little ones away from that one.

Southside Film Festival volunteers will be on hand to advise and answer any questions about the films.
