PHENOMENAL SHORTS: CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF BRIDGING THE GAP

Print

Our documentary film, Breadmakers (Director Yasmin Fedda), is to be shown at the 2019 Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The screening is part of the Scottish Documentary Institute’s Bridging the Gap scheme which is celebrating its 15th Birthday. Breadmakers will be shown along with eight hand-picked short documentaries.

Full details of all films here: Bridging the Gap Films.

Breadmakers (2007) is a short documentary film directed by Yasmin Fedda and produced by Jim Hickey and Robin Mitchell. This is a film about a unique Edinburgh bakery, where a community of workers with learning disabilities make a variety of organic breads for daily delivery to shops and cafes in the city. The Garvald Bakery is part of a centre inspired by the ideas of Rudolf Steiner where the workers realise their potential for self-discovery and creativity in a social environment.

Breadmakers has been screened at over 50 film festivals worldwide and has won a number of awards including the Short Scottish Documentary Award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (2007), the Best Short Documentary prize at the Athens International Documentary Festival on Disability (2008) and the Black Pearl for Best Documentary Short Film at the Middle East International Film Festival (2008). Breadmakers was also nominated by BAFTA Scotland in the Best Short Film category in 2008. You can view the film here: Breadmakers Film online.

The screening will take place in Edinburgh at Filmhouse 3 on Thursday 20th June at 8.10pm.

 

 

Princess pumps, hunts monks, thumps chumps, does own stunts in brand-new show

Print

From our colleagues at The Cadies & Witchery Tours.

The Cadies & Witchery Tours co-founder, Robin Mitchell, is also the creator of the popular children's character Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess). Since Princess Pumpalot's inception in 2012, there have been 2 books published and 105 shows performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Robin has written a brand new show for the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe entitled Princess Pumpalot: The Ghostly Farting Monk Hunt. It's hardly surprising, with Robin's long association with the Cadies & Witchery Tours, that he's introduced a monk to his new production. Not a mad monk this time, but a farting monk. (Not that our own Mad Monk doesn't fart, you understand. It's just less of adefining characteristic, as his unsavoury personal habits are legion.)

If you've enjoyed our Ghosts & Gore Tour or our Murder & Mystery Tour in the past, you'll certainly enjoy Princess Pumpalot: The Ghostly Farting Monk Hunt.

Can Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) and her best friend Guffy locate the Ghostly Farting Monk and save the Kingdom of Wiffyville from Prince Nastavia and the Low-Flying Gnomes?

With the help from Rat-A-Tat (a giant rat) and from regulars Steve the Werewolf, FAQ and The Bearded Witch, Princess Pumpalot and Guffy embark on another absurd adventure. This is a fast-paced, fun-packed show is for all the family. Warning: The Toilet of Truth returns!

Time: 11am (duration 50 mins)

Venue: Le Monde (Venue 47), 16 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PF

Dates:

Fri 2 and Sun 4 Aug

Mon 5 - Fri 9 Aug and Sun 11 Aug
