About the Festival

The inaugural Southside Film Festival took place in Southside Glasgow over the weekend of 13-15 May, 2011. It was the first ever film festival south of the Clyde creating 'pop up' cinemas in various locations as  Southside Glasgow does not have a local cinema.

Southside Film Festival screens a wide range of films -documentaries, animation, fiction in all its forms, artist's film and experimental film work as well as Scottish and Southside filmmakers. The festival also puts on filmmaking workshops and discussions and networking events for local filmmakers as well as our legendary film quiz. We also have monthly film screenings in The Glad Cafe.
