Cargo, Camera…Action! is an outdoor celebration of the Clyde and its history that will take place on the banks and bridges of the River Clyde on 26 July. Created by Glasgow Film as part of the Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme, the event is based around the moving image and the history of Glasgow and will offer film, theatre, music and more. Theatrical Collective 85A, will take-over the amphitheatre space at Custom House Quay presenting hourly theatrical concerts throughout the day on a custom-built ocean liner. A mocked-up film set will offer participants the chance to have their moment of glory in front of the camera…if the director allows it. Minty Donald and Nick Millar explore the Clyde in a film work while Eilidh MacAskill goes back to Victorian times, performing Bicycle Boom, a piece about the bicycle, the Victorian woman and emancipation. Enjoy new cinematic works from filmmakers Chris Leslie and Torsten Lauschmann exploring the shipbuilding history of Govan’s playground games and songs.

Cargo, Camera…Action! will take place on 26 July. The event is free but some parts of the events are ticketed. For more information see the Glasgow Film websiteKeep your eyes peeled on Central Station for more Cargo, Camera…Action! themed features including an interview with 85A.
