The dates for HIFF2021 have been set provisionally for the 19th to 24th April 2021

Screenings will take place in An Lanntair Arts Centre and some rural venues across the islands where social distancing  can be achieved. Festival organisers are also looking at presenting some outdoor screenings, digital streamings of some films and Film makers Masterclasses to increase the access to the Festival. 

The 2021 theme is:

(Due to current and potentially ongoing COVID 19  restrictions on the operation of cinemas and outdoor gatherings this event may be subject to postponement in the event of further Local Lockdowns at the time of delivery.  Status at: 10 Jan 2021).


In the meantime we are accepting submissions to the  Festival of  films which meet our theme until 30th January 2021

The Hebrides International Film Festival is a curated Festival, most of the films are invited to present. However, if you have a film that fits our theme and you woud like to submit to the Festival for consideration please contact Muriel Ann Macleod  (Creative Producer & Film Programmer) email:muriel@ruralnations.com.

Note: HIFF presents current cinema content, films must have been made in the last three years and Festival programmers will need to be able to view the full finished film on vimeo or equivalent. We are particularly interested in receiving current environmental documentary.
