2016 South West Picture Show

Welcome to The 2016 South West Picture Show, a festival of community and collaboration, celebrating the act of cinema-going and communal film watching experiences in pop-up cinemas, the great outdoors and village halls all the way across Dumfries and Galloway.

A Sense of Place

The theme that links these independently run events led by film societies, community groups, artists and cultural organisations is "A Sense of Place", and a thoughtful consideration of how film relates to location. While some films have a straightforward link to Dumfries and Galloway such as our opening event - filmed predominantly in Galloway, an area with which it has since become synonymous, ‘The Wicker Man’ is being screened outdoors in the actual location where it was shot - other films reveal connections to the region in surprising or tangential ways.
