THERE was good news yesterday for cinema lovers in Dumfries and Galloway.

The South West Media Factory announced that, thanks to funding from Film Hub Scotland’s BFI Film Exhibition Fund, they will be bringing the 2022 South West Picture Show back to the region.

They will be working with partners across the region to show a veritable feast of films with Q&As, masterclasses and workshops – and promise there’ll be something for everyone.

The full season of monthly film screenings will be shown from June to October with a week-long Film Festival in September, with the full programme to be released soon.

Factory directors Belle Doyle and Tabitha Mudaliar said: “We are delighted to be bringing the South West Picture Show back to the region. It is a true celebration of film.

“We want to thank Film Hub Scotland for their support and their belief in the work we are doing to celebrate film in this region. We’re looking forward to announcing the full programme in the coming weeks.”

And a spokesperson for Film Hub Scotland added: “Film Hub Scotland are delighted to support South West Media Factory’s monthly screenings throughout 2022, culminating in the South West Picture Show Festival in September. A range of international, independent, and Scottish films will cover topics including food production, rural life, and climate change. We are positive that this diverse programme will bring together audiences at locations across Dumfries and Galloway, as well as appealing to online audiences further afield.”

Meanwhile, The South West Media Factory is recruiting three mentee positions for young people who are keen to gain experience in film exhibition.
