The Central Station launch: bringing the online community into the real world. A weekend jam-packed with talks, screenings and socialising. A Big Red Bus took everyone on a tour of Glasgow’s known, and less well known, creative sights, and local filmmakers, artists and designers got up and introduced their creative projects.

Central Station set up a hub for a day where visiting filmmakers could find out about the site, sign up and blog their festival antics.

We hosted an innovative event at Inspace: an exhibition of members’ work and a journey through our collaborative project Sound:Image:Art with awardwinning sound studios Savalas, visual artist Roderick Buchanan and composer Andy Sim and his band Fear Wasabi. The event finished with an unveiling of the final work. The day ended in style with a heaving party at Henry’s Cellar Bar with the folk from short film production company Digicult. Throughout the festival we also had two members reporting from the frontline with all the latest news, reviews and behind-the-scenes gossip. They live-blogged during our Sound:Image:Art event, relaying to the wider community the atmosphere and discussions taking place and adding an additional layer of interactivity to the proceedings.
