Kelta Filma Festo All Media Scotland:

An investigative historical documentary filmed in Uist, Skye and France has been chosen to represent Scotland in the Factual Documentary category at the 2008 Celtic Media Festival in Galway.

Presented by John Morrison, Dòmhnallaich na Frainge (The MacDonalds of France) sheds new light on the 1745 rebellion and reveals the extraordinary story of a Hebridean father and son who played key roles in both Highland and French History.

The Celtic Media Festival is an annual three-day celebration of broadcasting, film talent and excellence from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and Britanny. This year it is being held in Galway, Ireland from the 16th to 18th April.

John Morrison says the entire production is delighted with the documentary’s nomination. “The Celtic Media Festival is open to English language productions as well as Gaelic and Welsh, Breton and Cornish. Dòmhnallaich na Frainge is living proof that Gaelic language production can match anything that can be made in English or any other language.”
