In collaboration with Transit Arts, ATLAS will be hosting a screening programme at Skye Live 2016. At the festival they will be showing six films; two artist’s films and one archive film, ‘Salmon Fishing on Skye’ made in 1943, curated by ATLAS and Transit Arts and three films chosen from the open submission call. To encourage the film talent in the local area, ATLAS is restricting the submission to people living in the Highland Region and Western Isles. This is a great opportunity for young and emerging filmmakers to show their talent at a big event alongside established films; including recently made, ‘Oyster’ by American filmmaker Margaret Salmon.

Hosted by Marcus Jack of Transit Arts and Suzy Lee of ATLAS Arts, the films will be shown on a screen in the back of a transit van. Successful applicants will also be featured in a zine designed and created by Transit Arts as a celebration and legacy of the event.

The theme selected for the screening is Labour (manual work). Films submitted should be a response to this theme. Open to all ages, we especially encourage young filmmakers (school age) to apply. Films can be in either English, or Gaelic with English subtitles.

Further Information
ATLAS is an organisation dedicated to visual arts projects and education in Skye and Lochalsh, Scotland. An organisation ‘without walls,’ we are uniquely placed to help to deliver a contemporary arts programme in a rural setting. From winter to spring ATLAS host SCREEN-IT, a film screening programme designed to introduce contemporary artists’ moving image to a new audience.

Transit Arts is a framework for the exhibition of contemporary moving image work in non-gallery, outdoor locations. Screening films from the back of a van, the peripatetic curatorial project seeks to engage local audiences through an episodic programme developed specifically in response to that locality.

Skye Live was founded by Niall Munro and Ali McIsaac, both Skye locals, and describe Skye Live as a “boutique festival”, showcasing the best of contemporary Scottish music and bringing together lesser known bands as well as more established acts such as King Creosote and Capercaillie.
