Have your coffee, go for a smoke or play your guitar or anything that you find! Some of the thiscollection short movies don't have any music in them, and we're planning to ask you, viewers, to create a soundtrack for it. Anyone can join in! Doesn’t matter if you’re not a musician or you don’t have your instrument with you, take some spoons or sing. J You have more ore less half an hour to improvise and rehears together and then to perform when you get the sign... And the fun part: this Jam will actually be filmed and used in a future project of Glue Factory, Glasgow.

17.50 – 19.40:  This Collection
Sit back and enjoy this vivid snapshot of the range of creative talent auld reekie has to offer through poetry and film art! is a copy left non-hierarchical, non-curatorial experiment to engage
film with local poems set in the postcodes of Edinburgh.
Every scratch, every shake, every poetic pause in our digital canvas makes art a right
not a privilege, and our terms of engagement must shift.
Familiar streets and scenes take on a new look from these films collected to date, all
short poetic vignettes and some imaginative reinterpretations of poems written by
poets from all walks of life. (You find the detailed program of films screened tonight at the door!)
