Press Archive: Selected quotes

It’s small, it’s intimate (especially in the boathouse) but it’s also a way of bringing a neighbourhood together. You like to imagine this is how Tribeca or Sundance started out. And if nothing else, it’s a nice way to meet the neighbours.” –Pauline McLean, BBC Scotland arts correspondent (online article, BBC website) about 2011 festival

Southside Film Festival returns for a second year to provide an oasis of film to an area of Glasgow that’s starved of the moving image for much of the year” –Jamie Dunn, The Skinny about 2012 festival 

“How can a film festival exist without a cinema? The  Southside Film Festival has some suggestions. Now in its third year, the festival gets round the south side’s lack of cinema spaces by celebrating the moving image in variety of pop-up venues, from a public baths to a stately home. The event features homegrown directors and work from the south side’s international community, as well as a few classics…The last cinema in the south of the Clyde may have closed in 2001, but SFF creates its own cinematic odyssey from 16-19 May. And it’s just up the road.” –The Skinny, May 2013

“The Southside Film Festival is better than any cinema I have ever been too – ever! The whole experience feels like it should! Like an exciting time out to see something new.” – Paul Duddy, Pinso, 20 May 2013

 “It’s nothing less than a grassroots cultural explosion: take a Saturday morning walk around Shawlands and the surrounding areas, and it’s unmissable. There is a buzz of community, of people making stuff happen...” –  The List, May 2014
