This festival is not just for film buffs – the programme aims to cater for young and old, rich and poor, across the Southside and hopefully there will be something for everyone.
For young kids there will be a selection of films from the Dundee Discovery Childrens’ Film Festival. For older people some archive footage of the local area from the 1960s and there will a number of family friendly screenings too. The programme will also include animation, music videos, artist’s films and a selection of short films programmed by the Glasgow Short Film Festival.
All this plus feature films that have been produced by Southside or Scottish talent. For those who want to learn more about filmmaking there will be also be workshops on screenwriting, acting and talks by filmmakers.
There will be a festival hub so people who come to the festival can meet and talk to the filmmakers and discuss the films, workshops and talks with other Southsiders. The aim is to make the festival a social as well as a cultural experience.
