Folk Film Gathering returns with a range of films in 2022.

Curated by Transgressive North, this is the world’s first folk film festival, screening films that celebrate the lived experiences of communities worldwide. Each annual edition explores the relationships between cinema and other traditional arts (such as oral storytelling and folk song), discovering what a folk cinema has been at moments throughout world film history, and how it may look in the future.

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