VIRTUAL LAUNCH FOR FILMG

Shona Masson FilmG

Gaelic short film competition FilmG, has launched this year’s competition with the help of a well-known face from Gaelic broadcasting sharing tips, tricks and all the crucial entry information in a special online show.

Shona Masson, presenter of BBC ALBA’s upcycling series Dreach Ùr, hosted the YouTube event, which included a Q&A from pupils hoping to take part in the competition, a look back at the best from previous years of the competition, and the unveiling of this year’s stunning competition theme images.

2020 has been a year like no other, and FilmG’s yearly theme had to reflect this – Èirich (Gaelic for rise) aims to inspire this year’s filmmakers to rise above the challenges that the previous few months have thrown at them.

Alongside the competition launch, the FilmG team also announced the new series FoghlamG, an online masterclass in filmmaking from industry professionals, which provides those taking part with the knowledge to create stunning films on their own, without even the need for professional equipment. FoghlamG is available on FilmG’s YouTube channel.

As well as packing all of this into the livestream launch, the FilmG team gave pupils from across Scotland the opportunity to ask Shona, who also directs programmes for BBC ALBA, questions they might have about Gaelic, filmmaking, and media in general.

Shona Masson, who has been involved in many FilmG entries over the years, as both a youngster and industry professional said: “It’s clear that creating and trying new things is good for everyone, and FilmG provides a platform for anyone to take part in a creative competition by making a short film. Everyone has a story to tell, so if you’re interested, hopefully you’ll make an entry for FilmG this year!”

FilmG is run by MG ALBA and Skye-based media company CGS, to encourage the growth of Gaelic media talent. This is the competition’s thirteenth year, and has been the platform for many people now working within the Gaelic TV and film industry.

FilmG’s project manager, Ewan MacLean said: “FilmG is a huge part of the Gaelic social calendar, and in particular for the schools that we are involved with, so it’s such a pleasure that we’ve been able to keep that up in 2020.It’s so important for creative young filmmakers to see how professionals work, and be able to ask them about the industry.”

Murdo MacSween, Communications Manager for MG ALBA, said: “We’re very proud of the continued impact of FilmG in inspiring and developing young filmmakers to make Gaelic content. FilmG is very important to us and we can’t wait to see this year’s crop of films, they keep getting better and better.”

FilmG will remain open to entries until the 11th of December. Find out more at www.filmg.co.uk, or on the FilmG social media pages.

Shona Masson FilmG

Chaidh farpais nam filmichean goirid Gàidhlig, FilmG, a chur air bhog le aodann aithnichte bho shaoghal nam meadhanan Gàidhlig, a’ toirt seachad comhairle, cleasan, agus fiosracahdh mu chur a-steach airson farpais na bliadhna-sa ann am prògram a chaidh a shruthadh beò air loidhne.

‘S i neach-lìbhrigidh prògram ath-cleachdaidh BBC ALBA Dreach Ùr Shona Masson a bh’ aig stiùir an tachartais YouTube, anns an robh seisean Q&A bho sgoilearan a tha an dùil pàirt a ghabhail anns a’ cho-fharpais, sùil air ais air an cuid as fheàrr bho FilmG sna bliadhnaichean a chaidh seachad, agus foillseachadh ìomhaighean air leth brèagha airson cuspair na bliadhna-sa.

Tha 2020 air a bhith na bliadhna gun shamhla, agus bha aig cuspair FilmG na bliadhna-sa ri seo a fhreagairt – tha Èirich ag amas air filmeadairean a bhrosnachadh gus iad fhèin a thoirt an àrd a dh’aindheoin dùbhlain nam mìosan a chaidh seachad.

A bharrachd air an fharpais fhèin ga chur air bhog, dh’inns sgioba FilmG mu dheidhinn an t-sreath ùr FoghlamG, a tha na sreath de chlasaichean air leth bho phroifeasantaich a’ ghnìomhachais, a bheir an t-eòlas agus an stiùireadh a tha a dhìth orrasan a tha an dùil pàirt a ghabhail anns a’ cho-fharpais, gun fheum air uidheamhachd proifeasanta. Tha FoghlamG ri fhaotainn air seanail YouTube FilmG.

A bharrachd air seo uile taobh a-staigh fèill mhòr a’ phrògraim beò, thug sgioba FilmG an cothrom dha sgoilearan bho air feadh Alba ceistean a chur air Shona, a bhios cuideachd a’ stiùireadh prògraman air BBC ALBA, mu dheidhinn na Gàidhlig, a’ cruthachadh film, agus na meadhanan san fharsaingeachd.

Thuirt Shona Masson, a tha i fhèin air a bhith an sàs le iomadach film FilmG thar nam bliadhnaichean, an dà chui na h-òige agus na beatha proifeasanta: “Tha deagh fhios againn gu bheil e math dhuinn a bhith a' cruthachadh agus a' feuchainn rudan ùra, agus bheir FilmG an cothrom dhan a h-uile duine a dhol an lùib pròiseact cruthachail le bhith dèanamh film goirid. Tha sgeulachd aig a h-uile duine ri innse, mar sin, ma tha ùidh agaibh tha mi 'n dòchas gum feuch sibh air film a dhèanamh airson FilmG am-bliadhna.”

Tha FilmG air a lìbhrigeadh le MG ALBA agus companaidh riochdachaidh CGS, a tha stèidhte air an Eilean Sgitheanach, gus fàs a bhrosnachadh ann an tàlant Gàidhlig sna meadhanan. Tha a’ cho-fharpais a nise anns an treasamh bhliadhna deug aice, agus tha i air a bhith na ùrlar do mhòran a tha a-nise ag obair taobh a staigh gnìomhachas nam meadhanan Gàidhlig.

Thuirt manaidsear a’ phròseict aig FilmG, Eoghan MacIllEathain: “Tha FilmG na rud cho mòr air mìosachan nan Gìadheal, agus gu h-àraid dh ana sgoiltean leis a bheil sinn an sàs, agus mar sin tha e na thlachd dhuinn gu bheil e air a bhith comasach a leithid a rud a lìbhrigeadh a-rithist ann na 2020.! Tha e cho cudromach do fhilmeadairean òga cruthachail a bhith a’ faicinn cò ris a tha e coltach a bhith ag obair nad phroifeasantach, agus gum bi cothrom aca ceistean a chur orra mun ghnìomhachas.”

Thuirt Murchadh MacSuain, Manaidsear Conaltraidh aig MG ALBA: “Tha sinn air leth moiteil às a’ bhuaidh maireannaich a th’ aig FilmG ann a bhith a’ piobrachadh is a’ toirt leasachadh air filmeadairean òga gus susbaint Gàidhlig a chruthachadh. Tha FilmG cho cudromach dhuinn agus tha sinn gu mòr a’ coimhead air adhart ri toradh na bliadhna-sa, oir tha na filmichean a’ sìor fhàs nas fheàrr gach bliadhna.”

Tha a’ cho-fharpais fosgailte suas gu 11 Dùbhlachd 2020. Faic barrachd aig www.filmg.co.uk agus air na meadhanan sòisealta FilmG.
