Film Festival Management & Programming


Karen O’Hare of KOH PRO set up Southside Film Festival in 2011 and since then has produced and programmed an annual film festival as well as one off film screenings and events throughout the year. The Southside of Glasgow doesn’t have a cinema so Southside Film puts on a screen wherever it can find a space, creating pop up cinemas and screens a wide range of films with associated events.

Karen has also programmed for Document Human Rights Film Festival and for WAVE (We Are Visual Europe), a European funded partnership between Document, Movies That Matter in Amsterdam, Nuremberg Human Rights Film Festival and Make Dox in Macedonia to produce an educational toolkit for 12-16 year olds in formal and informal education in Scotland and Macedonia.

Karen was an international jury member for Document Human Rights Film Festival in 2014.

Karen has also volunteered for West Belfast Film Festival, Belfast Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF), European Media Arts Festival (EMAF), Document Human Rights Film Festival and Scottish Queer International Film Festival (SQIFF).
