Since 1980, the Celtic Media Festival
has brought together people who broadcast, and now Webcast, in Celtic languages. Videoblog Gwagenn.TV provides a report (with autoplaying video)
from the 2009 festival whose clips and interviews are spoken and subtitled variously in Breton, French, English, Welsh, Scots Gaelic and Irish, Catalan, and Basque, not all of which are actually Celtic.
Special feature: Man-on-man kiss during Catalan soap opera.
(Poke around at Gwagenn.TV
and you’ll find such amusements as a rocket launch carried out entirely in Breton
with Beastie Boys soundtrack, an interview with an Occitan-language reggae band subtitled in Breton
], and a report from a Manx-language workshop
