HOW SHORT films have reflected, recorded, and shaped Irish identity over the past 100 years will be examined in 100 Years of Cinema: Irish Short Films, which takes place in An Taibhdhearc next week.
The event takes place on Saturday June 18 and will be curated by Mick Hannigan, the IndieCork festival programmer and former artistic director of the Cork Film Festival.
Starting at 11.30am, there will be a screening of short films made by the Galway Film Centre’s Documentary School & Film School, followed at 12 noon by Splanc! 2016. Eight new short films, commissioned under the TG4 and Arts Council Splanc! Irish language arts documentary scheme, administered by the Galway Film Centre, will be screened.
At 1pm, a second event, entitled Towards a Canon of Great Irish Shorts, takes place. This will involve screenings of films selected by Mick Hannigan. He will be joined by former Galway Film Fleadh programmer Felim McDermott, who will interview Mick. There will also be an opportunity to hear some of the filmmakers selected talk about their work.
