HIFF - Hebrides International Film Festival


Welcome to the Hebrides International Film Festival 2016

Wednesday 14th to Sat 17th September 2016

The theme for this years Film Festival is Islands and Environments. Full programme available online now.

Tickets available to book through An Lanntair from 15/08/2016.



After the success of our drama and documentary programme last year which featured  both shorts and feature length cinema from small Islands across the globe and current environmental cinema from 15 countries.  In collaboration with our local Hebridean venue promoters  we have decided to continue with this theme to see if we can find excellence in International environmental film from other island cultures, rural environments and native peoples.

We have sourced films shot in the last three years for the 2016 programme.

Stay up to date with our latest news- sign up for our enewsletter.

The festival will run across venues in Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra including the award winning arts centre An Lanntair and a pop up cinema in Stornoway town centre. 

This years Festival has been programmed by Muriel Ann Macleod (Creative Director at Rural Nations CIC)  working in collaboration with programmers at An Lanntair and with Paul Taylor, Cinema Programmer, Eden Court Theatre.
