Pop-up Film is a non-profit organisation who program film events for disenfranchised communities, with little or no art provisions. You may have attended Pop-up Film’s events before under the Glasgow Film strand (when originally named Glasgow Pop-up Programmers). In February this year, Pop-up Film brought screenings to Langside Halls, the Chinatown groceries, Ayr Town hall Courtroom and the Glasgow Women’s Library.

Now, partnered with somewhereto_, Pop-up Film are coming back with a new agenda and broader horizons. The partnership will allow them to expand their choice of venues, build a stronger community relationship and invite audience members to get involved and continue the legacy themselves. Pop-up Film have a desire to stretch beyond the conventional cinema screening and create a cinema experience, taking you out of your comfort zone and involving you in the themes of their films.

If you’ve ever stood outside a shop watching a film on a make-shift screen, went to get some groceries at the supermarket and found a small assembly of chairs around a film projection at the back, or stood in a park looking up at a light and sound extravaganza on a professional stage, then you have witnessed a form of Pop-up cinema.

And Pop-up Film Glasgow do it best!

Look out for details of their re-launch event in September, their first event in partnership with somewhereto_.
