STUDENTS OF film & television at the GMIT will screen their end of year work in the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday June 12.
Some 24 students on the three-year BA programme have worked together on six film projects which will be screened for their families, friends, and special guests.
The event will be formally opened by GMIT president Marion Coy at 2.30pm after which four short films and two documentaries will be screened.
The documentaries are Knock and Taking Care Of Business. Knock examines the east Mayo village and meets a variety of people who discuss the authenticity of this religious haven and its apparitions. Taking Care Of Business focuses on Liam Murphy, a fulltime Elvis impersonator.
The short films are Heaven Scent, about a widower who faces the challenges of loss and grief when packing his wife’s belongings for donation to charity; Black, about a man, a lightbulb, and economic catastrophe; Left Behind, an experimental short film about a girl trapped in a building; and Resonance, about a deaf girl who loves to dance.
All of the GMIT films will be shown at the Galway Film Fleadh in July.
