Ulster Scots on Film
Friday, 11 June, 3 p.m. — Parish Hall Cinema, Gortahork
Screening and debate as part of the Guth Gafa International Film Festival.
"Ulster Scots on Film, is a celebration of Ulster Scots film and television programming and an opportunity to bring together the general public who have an interest in Ulster Scots language and attendant culture, with professionals from the industry who work in, or have an interest in, Ulster Scots programmes.
The event will be structured around the screening of two films, Lionel Mill's Us Boys (co-funded by RTÉ, Northern Ireland Film & Television Commission and The Irish Film Board), and Deaglán Ó Mochain's The Hamely Tongue: Cultúr Ceilte (funded by TG4, BAI, Foras na Gaeilge and The Ulster Scots Agency). The film screenings will be followed by a discussion about the films, and about Ulster Scots culture and language in film and television in general."
