This is an article taken from The Scotsman newspaper on the 7th December 2007.

Flavoured with linseed, walnut or oatmeal, organic bread from the Garvald Bakery is already famous with diners at some of Scotland's top eateries. Now a film about a unique community of bakers with learning disabilities is poised to spread the Edinburgh-based bakery's reputation to the United States.

Breadmakers, a 11-minute documentary, has won a screening at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The event, founded by the actor Robert Redford, is held in Park City, Utah.

The film, which has no voice-over or narrative, concentrates on about four adults from more than 30 who work in the bakery in the capital's Gorgie Road, part of the Garvald Centre.

Funded by the Bridging the Gap new talent initiative, the film has shown at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and at another festival in Iran.
