Southside Film Festival calls for board members and volunteers

Do you want to get involved in the next stage of the Southside Film Festival?

Southside Film Festival was established in May 2011 in response to the lack of a local cinema in the Southside of Glasgow. Fast forward to 2014 and there is a plan from G1 group to open a cinema in Shawlands and Cineworld are due to open a multiplex in Silverburn in early 2015. So, Southside Film Festival has decided this is a good time to refocus the aims and objectives of the festival. We still want to continue to support local filmmakers and to continue to produce special one off ‘pop up’ cinema events and host ‘site specific’ screenings. We also recognise the potential of the festival to grow and develop. Do you want to get involved in this next stage of Southside Film Festival?

Call for Advisory Board Members
We are establishing an Advisory Board to help steer the next stage of the film festival’s development and want to hear from anyone that is interested in joining us at this exciting time. We are particularly are interested in hearing from filmmakers, writers, musician, artists and other creative practitioners based in the Southside who have a passion for cinema and film in all its forms. We are also keen to hear from those with experience in community arts development /fundraising, audience development, journalism and business but do get in touch if you just love the Southside and/or love film and filmmaking. We expect that we will have Quarterly Advisory Board Meetings and that board members will be asked to contribute ideas and expertise as appropriate. The Board positions are voluntary but as per the festival’s Volunteer Policy, expenses will be covered.

Call for Volunteers
We are also looking for new volunteers to join the festival to help with the organisational elements; in particular we are looking for a new Secretary and a new Treasurer to take up key roles in the film festival organisation. However, if you are interested in getting involved with the festival in other capacities then do get in touch. We are always keen to support those looking for experience in FOH, marketing, programming and event production. The amount of time you commit to volunteering is dependent on the role –the Treasurer and Secretary will have to commit approximately half a day a month to festival activity and to attend monthly meetings in the Southside. For the other volunteer roles, you can give as much time as you are able to supporting film screenings and events, talks and workshops in the Southside. Again, expenses will be covered.

Southside Film Festival is a volunteer run film festival, film club and film event producer that operates as Community Interest Company (SC418100). Find out more about Southside Film Festival here:

If applying to Volunteer, please indicate if you are applying for the Secretary or Treasurer Roles or what other area you would like to get experience in.

Deadline for both is midnight Sunday 31st August, 2014. If you have any questions please email Karen O’Hare on southsidefilmfest@gmail.com.
