Breadmakers wins Short Documentary Award at Edinburgh

Yasmin Fedda, the director of Breadmakers, has won the Short Scottish Documentary Award (funded by a donation from Baillie Gifford) at the 2007 Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The judges had a difficult decision to make, so much so, they presented a runner-up prize to the film How To Save A Fish From Drowning (dir: Kelly Neal).

Made as part of the Scottish Documentary Institutes' Bridging the Gap scheme, Breadmakers tells the story of a community of Edinburgh workers with learning disabilities making a variety of organic breads for daily delivery to shops and cafes in the city.

The film has already been selected by the BBC Film Network and will be screened on the site after its Edinburgh premiere.
