BBC ALBA animation screens at Cannes Short Film Festival

Catrìona Black

Cannes Short Film Festival has screened a BBC ALBA short film on the glitzy French Riviera.

Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn (You are at the bottom of my mind) commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Iolaire Disaster, one of Britain’s worst maritime disasters.

In the early hours of 1 January 1919, the naval yacht HMY Iolaire, carrying sailors returning from the war, sank after hitting rocks on its approach to Stornoway, tragically killing over 200.

Commissioned as part of BBC ALBA’s Hogmanay schedule last year, the hand-drawn animation was a labour of love for the Dutch-based Scottish animator Catrìona Black.

Catrìona said: “BBC ALBA gave me the opportunity to tell this story for its audience, and that it’s now gaining international interest is wonderful recognition for the film. It’s a hugely important story, one that’s not even well known in Scotland, so to be showcased on the European stage like this obviously means a lot.”

BBC ALBA has had an impressive year, earning multiple plaudits at the Royal Television Society of Scotland annual television awards, including nods for the channel’s first sketch-comedy show, FUNC.

Prògram beothachaidh BBC ALBA air a shealltainn aig Cannes Short Film Festival

Tha an Cannes Short Film Festival air film goirid bho BhBC ALBA a shealltainn am measg seallaidhean àlainn an Riviera Frangach.

Tha 'Tha thu air Aigeann m’ Inntinn' (You are at the bottom of my mind) a’ comharrachadh 100 bliadhna bhon a thachair tubaist an Iolaire, aon de na tubaistean mara is miosa ann an uisgeachan an Rìoghachd Aonaichte.

Tràth air madainn 1 Faoilleach 1919, bhuail HMY Iolaire creagan ’s i a' tilleadh a Steòrnabhagh le seòladairean bhon Chogadh Mhòr. Chaochail còrr air 200 duine.

Air a choimiseanadh mar phàirt de chlàr na Bliadhn Ùire air BBC ALBA an-uiridh, b’ e obair toileachais a bh’ ann dhan dealbhadair Catrìona NicIlleDhuibh.

Thuirt Catrìona: “Tha BBC ALBA air a’ chothrom seo a thoirt dhomh agus nise gu bheil ùidh eadar-nàiseanta ann cuideachd, tha sin sgoinneil airson an fhilm. ‘S e sgeulachd air leth chudromach a th’ ann, sgeulachd air nach eil daoine uabhasach eòlach fiùs ann an Alba, agus tha e cho math gu bheil e nise cuideachd air àrd-ùrlar Eòrpach mar seo.”

Tha bliadhna air leth soirbheachail air a bhith aig BBC ALBA am-bliadhna, a’ cosnadh iomadh duais aig duaisean Royal Television Society Scotland, nam measg FUNC, am prògram comadaidh.
