Transgressive North

the world’s first annual festival OF FOLK CINEMA


Curated by Transgressive North, 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.

The 2024 Folk Film Gathering – our 10th edition since the Gathering was founded in 2015 -  will explore a theme of remembering, celebrating and reflecting upon 10 years of the Folk Film Gathering in exploring connections old and new between communities in Scotland and those elsewhere in the world. 

Screenings and events will be online and in person at Cameo Picturehouse, and the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
