WITH A CHANCE TO WATCH AGAIN 

THE 2021 ONLINE FESTIVAL

FROM

17th October to 7th November

 

We're opening up the 2021 online Festival again on th 17th October to coincide with the 100th birthday of George Mackay Brown whose work was celebrated across this year's June Festival.   If you missed it, or want to watch again, then you can buy tickets from 17th October to view any of our films.   Our films received 5 star reviews and bring together  performances in a range of venues and landscape mixing music with spoken word and providing a visual feast of Orkney itself.  Our film of the play The Storm Watchers  is also available, this won universal acclaim and is now being screened at other festivals in the UK.  There's also a host of fiddle tunes inspired by Mackay Brown as well as readings of his poetry and a documentary film about the writer.
