Filming of a documentary at the Nordic Feis
With approval from An Coimisiún, NSID and the Feis Committee has agreed to the filming of a documentary at the Nordic Feis, led by Essi Lahtinen-Carranza from Style Dance Industry. The documentary aims to bring attention to Irish dancing, in all it variations, throughout the Northern countries.
The crew will do most of the filming on Saturday. It will be done discretely by hand held devices by to 1 or 2 persons. You probably won’t even notice them, as they have promised to be as “invisible” as possible. The crew will respect everyone’s privacy and need to concentrate for their performances.
Upon the registration we will ask each and every one for their consent to participate. You might be asked if you are willing to be interviewed, and you’re approval will be obtained as to whether you are comfortable and willing to be visible on film. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to the Committee.
We are happy to announce that the adjudicator for the Nordic Feis 2015 in Turku is:
Mrs. Angela McDonagh, ADCRG, from Galway, Ireland.
