Highlight Arctic

Thu 16 Mar to Sun 19 Mar 

Highlight Arts (formerly Reel Festivals) is proud to return to Filmhouse, presenting its multi-arts Highlight Arctic project. Screenings include the three feature films produced by the pioneering Arnait Video Productions, which was the first women’s collective independent production company in the Arctic. Complementing Arnait’s first- ever UK retrospective is a trio of new Sámi films by women, plus a rare screening of Ed Folger’s Nanook Taxi and Atelier Nord’s powerful collection, Beyond Horizons.

These screenings take place as part of Highlight Arctic’s ongoing programme, taking place around Scotland between 24 February and 19 March.
