Are there any films made in Gàidhlig language?

I was wondering, have there ever been any films made totally in Gàidhlig? I don't mean dubbed or subtitled, but ones where the actors spoke in Gàidhlig (or failing that, dubbed ones would be ok). I think it would be great to watch films in Gàidhlig. Where can I find them? Thanks.

I think Seachd is probably the closest.

Seachd is definitely a good pick, because you can choose your subtitle language or completely switch them off if you buy the DVD. Try watching it without subtitles first, then with Gaelic subtitles, then with English subtitles, That way you will learn the most.

If you don't mind watching soaps for the good of your Gaelic, you can find episodes of two soaps, Machair (older) and Bannan (recent and current) on YouTube.

There is also a Gaelic Short Film competition every year, FilmG (varying quality) - earlier entries here:
