The Iberodocs documentary festival returns to Edinburgh Filmhouse this week, celebrating the culture and history of Ibero-American films.

Running from May 4-8 and curated by artistic director Mar Felices Gonzalez and Isabel Moura Mendes, the festival also features a section entitled Lusophone Eye, focusing on Brazilian and Portugese film, which this year has a focus on connection and isolation.

The festival begins with Gabo: The Creation Of Gabriel García Márquez, preceded by a reception for ticket holders - one of several events that will run through the festival.
