It is being organised by ScreenHI and goEVENTS, Scottish Government-funded bodies developing the creative industries in the Highlands and Islands.

goNORTH is taking place in Inverness.

Says ScreenHI: “There will be an even greater emphasis on the screen and broadcast industries. For this year’s festival, a new online radio station, goNORTH radio, will be launched. This will be a live streamed radio station broadcasting interviews with guest speakers and delegates, clips from films, live gigs, highlights from the workshops and seminars and specially-recorded performances.
