What we did on our Holidays…(Updated)

Beautiful Kilconquhar Exhibition

20th June – we were invited to show the film about the East Neuk railway as part of the “Beautiful Kilconquhar”‘ committee’s exhibition in Kilconquhar Church. The exhibition attracted over 400 visitors and featured displays of historical photographs and documents.

The film (as always) attracted a lot of interest. If anyone wants a copy, contact the Scottish Screen Archive (part of the National Library of Scotland), quoting Film Reference 0970: East Neuk of Fife Steam Railway by Mrs J. Bryant.

The film can be ordered online from: http://ssa.nls.uk

Colinsburgh Primary School

1st July – We were invited by Frank Connell to help make a film with the P7 students who will be going up to Waid Academy after the Summer. This was a “secret” project – and was screened as a surprise for Parents and other pupils and staff at the School’s annual prizegiving ceremony in the Town Hall on 1st July.

The film was an enormous hit with the audience. A short extract is shown below.

G::2010 – Glenrothes Film Festival

We’ve also become involved in the organisation of the inaugural Glenrothes Film Festival and Short Film Competition to be held in the Rothes Halls on Saturday, October 9th. An initiative of Glenrothes Community Cinema (our old friend Gav once again) in association with the Glenrothes Gazette and funding from “Celebrating Fife 2010”, this one day event will feature short films from Scottish film-makers and will the forerunner of more extensive festivals in the future.

This is a brand new week long arts festival based in and around Anstruther, and sponsored by our old friend, King Creosote (Kenny Anderson). We’ve been creating and screening film, including a preview of the film made by “ForestofBlack” of the Homegame Festival held earlier this year.

Here’s some pictures:

If you missed the Festival, SongByToad has a series of video diaries of the Festival on his website.

Warning: Children and those of a sensitive nature are advised that Matthew (lovely guy that he is) is rather free with expletives, so if you are easily offended by ripe language, don’t visit! Don’t say you haven’t been warned!


“Haarfest runs from Monday 16th to Saturday 21st of August.

There’ll be music from 8pm in the Hew Scott Hall from Monday to Thursday, and in the Cellardyke Town Hall on the Friday and Saturday.

During the afternoons we’ll be hosting art, craft and song workshops, organised walks and a beach clean, a “potted sports” afternoon PLUS art installations from the Fenceart department (okay, from members of glasgow’s school of art – proper artists) PLUS madcap and largely unexpected appearances by the National Theatre Scotland as part of their Celebrating Fife program PLUS some mindbogglingly techy stuff courtesy of Jon Rogers and his students.  If that’s not enough we hope to show a film or two.  Something for all august weathers.”

And as if that wasn’t enough…

Format will be similar to the Middle Eastern – Films, Food and Music.  Sometime in November. More information as it become available.
