Eddie McConnell is described by his peers as 'one of the finest documentary cameramen in the world'. His work across 50 years represents the best of documentary film-making in Scotland.

The festival is celebrating his achievements with a screening of short films and extracts from the McConnell collection, preserved in the film archive at the National Library of Scotland.
