International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival
Document : International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival invites you to attend this year's festival, Document 6, which will take place from 15 to 19 October in the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.
Full program http://www.docfilmfest.org.uk [please forward]
Document is the UK's only human rights documentary festival, one of only 18 of its kind in the world. Entering its sixth year with a continued confidence based on international acclaim and rising submissions, Document is determined to extend its reputation as one of the most unique and anticipated events in the Scottish calendar.
Wednesday 15 October
7.00pm Reception, CCA Cafe
8.00pm Opening Film - 'Between Heaven and Earth' (Frank van den Engel & Masha Novikova, Netherlands, 2006)
Document 6 will screen 62 films from around the world, including 15 world- and 37 UK-premieres, with innovative, underrepresented and culturally significant human rights content as a means of promoting critical debate on the major issues of our time.
By providing a platform for a broad range of ideas and individuals, Document 6 hopes to maintain a historically Scottish tradition of democratic debate within the context of global politics. In this sense, Document 6 is a key forum and information exchange for all those who are concerned with the issues and with celebrating human life in all its forms.
Document would like to thank Scottish Screen, The National Union of Journalists, Diversity Films, Museums Glasgow, Culture & Sport Glasgow, CCA, Variant, RIB, and all those who have helped make the festival possible.

stalls | resources | videotheque | events | free entry
Glasgow's Radical Independent Bookfair project (RIB) has been co-ordinating events since October 2006... helping to fill the gap left by the lack of alternative bookshops, radical events and platforms for imaginative and independent voices in our city.
Feral Trade Coffee from El Salvador will be available. Feral Trade is trading goods over social networks.
Due to popular demand, the Videotheque will hold copies of all of the films screening at Document 6 for you to select from and freely watch. If you should need any assistance, please ask at the book fair and they'll be happy to help.
Electron Club Open Day
Sat 18 October
The Electron Club is a voluntary run space where people interested in things like free open source software, circuit bending, hardware hacking, computer recycling, streaming, audio and video editing, green technologies, and amateur radio can meet, use equipment, and share and disseminate their skills and ideas. Every so often we have a free public Open Day where people can come along and see what goes on there, get involved if they wish, or just chat with people and eat some of the homemade baking that will be on offer.
This year's Open Day will include presentations, talks, workshops, and displays from Electron Club projects and people including: Glasgow Green Map, B.R.I.D.G.E, Dorkbot Alba and others.
Live improvised performance from the (subtle) Noise Orchestra.
