Glasgow Film Festival 2011

A strand celebrating Gaelic contributions to filmmaking alongside work showcasing other small indigenous communities from around the world, this collection of films demonstrates that many of the issues faced by such communities are the same the world over. Look out for other events accompanying these films - many of them are free and they provide a great opportunity to get in closer touch with Gaelic culture.
