Southside Film Festival

That the Parliament welcomes the 2013 Glasgow Southside Film Festival, which runs from 16 to 19 May; notes that the festival is now in its third year, in which time it has shown screenings to over 3,000 people; further notes the festival’s continued use of pop-up cinemas, which bring films to the community in venues ranging from pubs and cafés to museums and community halls; welcomes the role of the social enterprise, The Glad Café, as an information and ticket hub; understands that this year's highlights include a screening of the 1925 Soviet classic, Battleship Potemkin, which will be accompanied by a live Wurlitzer organ, and, We Are Northern Lights, which, it believes, is Scotland’s first ever crowd-sourced, mass-participation film; welcomes the news that the programme includes workshops aimed at young people, including one on filmmaking, and wishes the festival a very successful run.
