February 2018 Recap

lc feb 18

Hello again! Hope you’ve all enjoyed the magical few days of beautiful snowy weather these last few days, and that you all stayed safe and warm! Huge thanks to all who braved the cold last Wednesday to join us for another fantastic screening – was great to see so many of you there, and our filmmakers were very grateful to see another packed house. If you did miss it, well not to worry, here are the links to the films currently available online. Please share any you liked and help out our local artists!

    Little Cinema As Gaeilge/GalwayTheatre Festival Promos

    This month we’re looking for films made in the Irish language, and in May we’ll be collaborating once again with Galway Theatre Festival, in which we’ll be screening films which must be made in one single take, so get your creative juices flowing! Here’s two films from previous years for inspiration.

    Remaking classic film scenes in Irish is just an example of what you can do for Little Cinema March, but anything made in Irish is eligible!

    Hostage was made entirely in one take, and was one of my favourite Little Cinema productions to be part of, even if I did get killed at the end (sorry for the spoiler).

    A tale of friendship.

    This film is not available online.
