An 11-minute documentary about Garvald Edinburgh Bakery, which is staffed by people with learning disabilities, including Down's syndrome and autism, has won $75,000 (£46,000) at the Middle East International Film Festival, taking The Black Pearl for Best Documentary - Short Film.
Breadmakers, directed by Yasmin Fedda, a previous emp-loyee of the bakery, looks at the intricate social relationships that operate between staff, as they make a variety of organic breads, rolls and cakes for daily delivery to 26 shops in Edinburgh.Robin Mitchell, who produced the film with Jim Hickey, told British Baker: "The team at the bakery absolutely loved being filmed and, after a few minutes, really came out of their shells."
