The first ever Doric Film Festival has been launched to celebrate and showcase the vibrancy of north east culture.

If you are a budding film-maker or part of a community group, a school, young or old then the festival would like to encourage you to enter the film making competition. Each film must be no longer than 5 minutes, with all dialogue and text in Doric or north-east Scots.

The best submissions will be premiered at a red-carpet screening at the Belmont Filmhouse in May 2019.

You don’t have to be an experienced film-maker to be a part of this inclusive film festival. Training in pre-production, storyboarding and editing will be offered to those who require a support.

The festival has been set up by Scots Radio and supported by North-East Language Board, Elphinstone Institute, Robert Gordon University and Aberdeenshire Council.

Festival Director, Freida Morrison said “I wid like tae encourage fowk tae jine us an celebrate the vibrant langauge an culture wi hiv in the North East. An dinna worry – the Scots Radio an Festival Team are there tae help.”
