To mark Scotland's Year of Stories, we revisit rarely seen early works by several established talents, including Peter Mullan, David Mackenzie and Morag Mckinnon. In live action and animation, these six films tackle themes of storytelling head on, subverting folk tales, theatrical forms and cinematic genres with wry self-awareness and caustic humour.

This screening has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.


This programme also screens online. Follow the link to view on demand for the duration of the festival.
