Transgressive North are proud once again to present the world’s first festival of folk cinema, in partnership with Filmhouse and TradFest.

The Folk Film Gathering is a celebration of the myriad ways in which world cinema has engaged with folk culture in different places and times. Whether that’s ‘folk’ as a living tradition, as people’s history, as working class /subaltern culture, as political movement or as a ‘come-all-ye’ sense of community, the Folk Film Gathering will explore how cinema has engaged with different notions of folk in the course of world history.

Our programme of folk cinema this year centres upon ‘a sense of place’; showcasing films from Scotland, England, Italy, France, Alaska and Scandinavia, which explore deep connections between the experiences of communities and the landscapes in which they live. Each screening this year will be introduced with a live traditional arts performance.
