Hello friends! Many special thanks this time to everyone who stuck with us through our cancelled screening in February – the power outing was very unfortunate and unavoidable, so thank you for returning to us last week to check out this great line up of short films. Here’s the line up once again – we think you’ll agree, it was another great month for short films, from both returning submitters to some brand new faces!

      Nurses Vox Pop, submitted by Kenny Gaughan

      Vox Pop made by Kenny & Tony Walsh outside UCHG, getting the opinions of the striking nurses representing Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation – INMO.

      Waves, submitted by Emma Zukovič

      This short film was created as a response to the prominent stigma in Irish society surrounding mental health issues, particularly in relation to the experience of young men. The work aims to capture feelings and themes of mental illness and shine a light on this growing concern for people to share their inner turmoil. The piece however also offers a sense of hope that there is light following the darkness in the young protagonist’s life.

      Howdy Partner, submitted by John Murphy

      A little piece about positive mental health and being friends with yourself.
