Northen lights

New film festival at goNORTH is set to shine in Inverness.

by Jennie Kermode

For the last ten years the goNORTH festival of creative arts has been bringing a touch of glamour to Inverness and making it one of the go-to destinations in June. The industry focused event is a great showcase for emerging talent and aims to get a diverse range of output noticed. This year a new film strand will add to the excitement, with selected features running alongside a short film collection which is now inviting submissions.

The strand is the brainchild of ScreenHI, an agency dedicated to promoting film in the highlands and islands. Selected shorts may also be screened at the Wickerman Film Festival, the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Loopallu, the Tiree Festival and the Celtic Media Festival. goNORTH screenings will be held in venues across Inverness.
