Breadmakers: Back to Beirut

Print

Breadmakers Director Yasmin Fedda will be attending Beirut DC, The Cultural Association for Cinema, 5th edition of Ayam Beirut Al Cinema’iya Arab Film Festival, from October 16th to 24th, 2008. It's nice to think that while Yasmin spreads the word of Breadmakers in Beirut, the film itself will be screened closer to home at the Heartland Film Society’s Autumn Scottish Film Weekend in Aberfeldy, Scotland (see previous post).

Breadmakers at the Heartland Film Society

Print

After months of travelling the world’s film festival circuit Breadmakers will be screened closer to home at the Heartland Film Society’s Autumn Scottish Film Weekend in Aberfeldy. The screening will take place on Saturday 25th October 2008 at Dewar's Distillery, Aberfeldy. The audience vote for their preferred film and the winner receives the Palme Dewar award with an appropriate prize.

Heartland Film Society (HFS) was formed to enable the showing of films on a big screen in an informal and friendly atmosphere. In 2004, HFS won the British Federation of Film Societies Best New Film Society award. The judges made special mention of the novel and unique method (the bean-o-meter) that HFS uses to evaluate the success of each film shown. Not only that but it received commendation for the programme notes issued for each screening.

HFS is run as a self-funding venture – fees cover only the cost of putting on films and the hire of the Locus Centre. Why not join? You don't have to join in advance – just come along to any of the performances.

This year, the FIFEQ is celebrating its fifth anniversary and they will be holding events in Montreal, Quebec City and Chicoutimi on January 25-27 2008. Photography exhibitions, discussion tables and conferences will be presented in order to enhance their wide variety of films chosen for the festival…all of which are free of charge for everyone!

Breadmakers: Rising Stars

Print

An article by Jim Gilchrist of The Scotsman newspaper.

All hands to the table. There is the heavy thump of dough on flour-dusted stainless steel as the morning's batch of loaves and rolls takes shape; there is banter, snatches of a Christmas carol, and much whistling from Thomas. The baking of bread may be a linchpin of human existence, but for the workers in Garvald Bakery - tucked away behind a Volkswagen dealership on Edinburgh's Gorgie Road - making bread is more than just an age-old craft: it is their therapy and their key to broader integration into society.
