FilmG: Seeking The Future Stars of Scotland’s Media

The Gaelic short film festival, FilmG, is aiming to find the future stars of the media industry in Scotland.

The FilmG competition is aimed at both those under 18 (Youth) and those over 18 (Open), with 17 distinct categories in total, and this year filmmakers will be celebrated for their originality, their creativity and for taking their own initiative.

 FilmG Project Manager Murdo MacSween said: 

“FilmG is now live, and we are looking for films that are yellow in any way possible, apart from using that Coldplay song, that is banned! 

“We’re hoping to see the best-ever FilmG this year and we’re excited about the fantastic ideas we heard about this week at our launch events.”

The rules are all published on the FilmG website, but it is simple – create a Gaelic film, keep the duration under five minutes, and get it in before the deadline (9th December 2022).  

MG ALBA’s Director of Strategy and External Affairs, Ealasaid MacDonald, said: 

“The launch of FilmG is always a highlight for MG ALBA, but it is a little bit special this year as we celebrate 15 years of the competition. 

“It has evolved over the years to take account of the changes in the fast-paced media environment and we are all looking forward to seeing what imaginative and exciting content the theme Buidhe will inspire.”
