A steroid-fueled cattle farmer finds that his decision to do business with the Belgian cattle-hormone mafia could have potentially deadly consequences in this brooding Belgian crime drama that was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Flemish actor Matthias Schoenaerts spent two years transforming his slender body into a bulky and brooding figure which Variety called " a career defining, powerfully physical lead performance. " 
Also starring Matthias Schoenaerts from Rust and Bone
Michael R. Roskam’s debut feature Bullhead is a harrowing tale of revenge, redemption and fate. Watch the trailer

Indiewire: "stunning in its originality"

Cinemap 23-25 May 2014

Cinemap: mapping the Southside through film: 23-25 May 2014
After three successful years of running a film festival in May Southside Film Festival is doing something different in May 2014. 

Cinemap is inspired by the ALBERT DRIVE project in Pollokshields in 2013 which asked the question 'Who is my Neighbour?' Throughout the year ALBERT DRIVE explored different ways to bring people together in the Pollokshields community and some of the resulting films from this project are screening as part of Cinemap. 

Cinemap also includes films that explore the idea of neighbourhood, local and community and work by Southside filmmakers that is not necessarily about those themes, the only connection is that the filmmakers are based locally. We hope you enjoy the resulting diversity of new film work.

Cinemap is not only about bringing people together to watch films though -you can discover  new Southside spaces, learn more about the films through the filmmaker Q&As and post film discussions and have fun at all of the associated events. You never know you may even meet your neighbour!  
All screenings/events are free.

Cinemap programme:

Cinemap is a partnership project lead by Southside Film Festival with the ALBERT DRIVE project, Art Village, The Glad Cafe, Govanhill Baths, New Victoria Gardens, East Pollokshields Quad, Tramway and filmmakers Abigail Howkins and Basharat Khan. .
