The 2019 Folk Film Gathering revolves around a theme of storytelling, exploring some of the many instances in which Scottish and world cinemas have sought to invoke the qualities of folk tale and oral tradition. From Seachd’s celebration of the Gaelic oral tradition and BeDevil’s uncanny mix of folklore and urban legend among Australian aboriginal communities, to adaptations of master storytellers John Berger, Alan Garner and Neil Gunn, our programme this year looks at how diverse traditions of storytelling intersect with world cinema.

As in previous years, most of our screenings this year incorporate an element of live, traditional arts performance.
