Breadmakers: Bakery's Fame on the Rise


This article appeared in the Edinburgh Evening News on 7th November 2007.

There's a productive din in the busy bakery, while people scurry to put loaves on trolleys and wipe down flour-caked tables. It's 3.30pm and the apron-clad organic bakers are packing up for the day. But as long-serving worker Alan Auld opens the oven door, a rush of heat and a comforting waft of freshly baking bread escapes - and all the team's dedication seems worthwhile. In his white baker's hat and well-singed oven gloves, 60-year-old Alan looks every inch the professional baker, as he carefully removes a hot tray of loaves and places them on the cooling tray for all to admire.


BAFTA Nomination for Breadmakers


Breadmakers, a short documentary by young Edinburgh filmmaker Yasmin Fedda, is one of three films nominated by BAFTA Scotland in the best short film category.

It tells the story of a community of Edinburgh workers with learning disabilities in the Garvald Bakery in Gorgie, who make a range of organic breads for delivery to shops and cafes all over Edinburgh.


London Screening for Breadmakers


Breadmakers will be screened in London at the 8th London International Disability Film Festival.
