There is a rich harvest of film in this year’s programme, with numerous premieres and a wealth of beautiful images and sequences.

The sea runs through a number of them in this Year of Coasts and Waters, and there are stories of shore searches and lost ships, and seabirds and sea creatures in a world of sand and rocks and swaying kelp. There is also preparing food and making paper, and a wonderful wealth of music and song.

There are films from Orkney from Mark Jenkins and Raymond Besant, from mainland Scotland from Craig Sinclair, Somhairle MacDonald, Jarvis Gray, and Selena S Kuzman; and from Hedvika Petkovšek in Slovenia.
