Hello folks, Laura here! I’m one of the new volunteers with the Southside Film Festival & I’m here to tell you all how super-excited I am to get involved with all the goings on in 2013.
Having studied Film many moons ago, worked in events & volunteered with various other film festivals, I’ve now made a complete U-turn and been working in a completely unrelated field . My love for film however, has never waned - I’ve been keen to get back involved with the industry in some respect and the Southside Film Festival has offered a wonderful opportunity to work alongside some of the most amazingly talented & passionate film fans this side of the Clyde. I have been absolutely bowled over by the enthusiasm of the team of volunteers I’ve met so far who are offering up their time & skills to get involved and help bring film back to the Sou’side .
That very distinct Southside community feel seems to have filtered through into the organisation process so far with everybody mucking in & working hard to help make the 2013 festival a huge success.
We’ll be looking to update the blog as often as possible over the next few weeks with all the goings on from behind the scenes in the lead up to the festival, so keep checking back to see what kind of fun we’re all getting up to.
In the meantime, keep yer peepers peeled for a copy of this years programme which we started distributing in & around the southside yesterday - you can also check it out online here.
