THE FOLK FILM GATHERING
The world’s first annual festival of folk cinema,
in partnership with the
Scottish Documentary Institute.
Founded by Transgressive North in 2015, the Folk Film Gathering 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.
