Straight in at number 3


Yasmin Fedda has been listed by Scotland on Sunday in a top ten of faces to watch in 2008. This is what they said.

3 FILM Yasmin Fedda

Fedda is the young Edinburgh filmmaker behind Breadmakers, which won the Short Scottish Documentary Award at last year's Edinburgh International Film Festival and heads for Sundance this month. In the past Fedda has filmed a desert monastery in Syria, members of the Afro-Cuban religion Santeria, and a group of pensioners in Damascus. This film, though, stays closer to home. Following a community of workers with learning disabilities working in a bakery in Gorgie, in Edinburgh, it's a beautifully observed study of the complex systems of communication that the group use as they knead their loaves. We think Fedda's going places, and not just in Gorgie.

Breadmakers: Edinburgh Film Festival Article


An article from The Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Breadmakers, the winner of the Best Scottish Short Documentary at the 61st EIFF, has been selected for the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary about a unique community of bakers with learning disabilities set in Edinburgh’s Garvald Bakery, which received its premiere at EIFF 2007, also picked up a BAFTA Scotland nomination for Best Short Film.


Breadmakers: Rising Stars


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.


Breadmakers fly to Indonesia


Breadmakers, along with the other 2007 Bridging the Gap films produced through the Scottish Documentary Institute, will be shown at the Film Festival Dokumenter, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Since its inception in 2001, the Festival Film Dokumenter (FFD) has endeavoured to revive the Indonesian documentary film and encourage the making of international-calibre, yet uniquely Indonesian documentaries.

This year, the festival celebrates documentary with a special focus on humanity themes, showcasing films from internationally renowned filmmakers.

The 6th Film Festival Dokumenter, Indonesia, takes place between December 10-15, 2007.
