FOLK FILM GATHERING
April - May 2018
TRANSGRESSIVE NORTH are proud to present the world’s first festival of folk cinema, in partnership with Filmhouse Edinburgh and TradFest.
The theme for 2017 was 'Songs and Labour', and focussed upon song traditions and rhythms and weight of work depicted in world cinema.
EVERYTHING IS NEW
A joyous and invigorating international outreach project in aid of Dalit “untouchable” children in southeast India.
The Everything is New project consists of two separate music albums, Sun Choir and BOATS, and the feature length Everything Is New film.
A young man’s struggle to keep the past alive...
Our Scottish Bafta nominated and award-winning feature film features legendary Scottish performers Norman Maclean, Sheila Stewart, and Margaret Bennett alongside up and coming talent. Blackbird brings Scottish stars of past and future to the big screen.
Sun Choir is an album of new music by Transgressive North's in-house band, Marram.
Recorded with and for the Light Of Love Children's Choir, the album features collaborations with musicians from around the world, including Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, doseone, White Hinterland, and Margaret Bennett.

When The Song DIes
When The Song Dies is a poetic documentary that weaves stories, songs and memories from across Scotland, and places their testament in counterpoint to the richly evocative landscape of the Machars in Wigtownshire.
Featuring a range of contributors, the film is a poignant reminder of what was sung and said, and what is left behind.
