The Adventures Of Prince Achmed
- 65 min
- Directed by: Lotte Reiniger
- Written by: Lotte Reiniger
The world's first feature-length animated film takes a story from '1001 Arabian Nights'. A rare screening of a film that almost disappeared forever, before a new negative was made from the one remaining print in the 1970s.

First Aid Kit
Ethereal nu-folky from teenage Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg.
Sweeping and ethereal guitar-driven indie rock by the platinum-selling four-piece from Glasgow to promote the album Later … When The TV Turns To Static.

Founded in 1991, the Hebrides Ensemble is one of Scotland's most dynamic chamber groups, with a team of world-class players and a strong commitment to new music.
