In LIMBO, Omar is a promising young musician. Separated from his Syrian family, he is stuck on a remote Scottish island awaiting the fate of his asylum request. Ben Sharrock’s second feature LIMBO is a funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience.

JOURNEYS INTO FILM is a rousing and reflective programme of short films made by filmmakers with sanctuary-seeking backgrounds. The fantastic programme of five specially selected films offers both artistic intrigue and an injection of the reality of displacement and seeking refuge.
Short films include The Little Whale on the Beach by Parang Khezri, My Name is Anik by Bircan Birol, Ambience by Wisam Al-Jafari, Birds or Borders by Parham Ghalamdar and This is Not a Poem by Eric
Ngalle Charles and Greg Lewis.
