2016 Wee Green Cinema



Southside Film Festival presents Wee Green Cinema, in partnership with  Pollywood Community Cinema Pollokshields Playhouse  and Take One Action Film Festivals and supported by Big Lottery Scotland Awards for All.

Wee Green Cinema is a weekend long programme of feature films in a bike and solar powered cinema tent provided by Take One Action Film Festivals and programmed by Southside Film and short film screenings in a shipping container programmed by Pollywood Community Cinema at  Pollokshields Playhouse

We will be screening a range of films-animation, documentary and fiction films-from around the world- about the environment and climate change, cycling, recycling, upcycling, urban gardening, food waste, sustainability and more.

We have invited local Southside and wider Glasgow organisations to come along to talk about their work in these areas.

The whole weekend is free so don’t miss it, you may even get a chance to cycle one of the bikes that powers the film projector!
