A Gaelic Short Film Competition, FilmG, has had a record-breaking amount of entries from Gaelic film-makers across Scotland.

One hundred and three entries were submitted in total, including 23 films to the open category, 75 films made by young people aged 5-18, and five scripts.

The competition is now well-established in schools and with Gaelic speakers and filmmakers across the country, and voting for The People’s Choice Award is open until the end of January.

Shortlists chosen by a panel of media professionals will be announced in January, with the winners announced 14th February.

This year filmmakers were tasked with making films relating to the theme “Treòraich,” which means guide or lead.

Glasgow based independent filmmaker Alice Gordon’s film gives an emotional insight into the life of a vlogger.

Hamish MacLeod, whose documentary film Aig an Oir orThe Edge follows Lochalsh-born climber Kenny Rankin as he takes on a renowned route in Ayrshire, has also entered this year.

Glendale Gaelic School on Glasgow’s South Side took part following a year’s break from the competition.
