March 2018 Recap

lc mar 18

Hello all, and welcome to our recap of another great month at Little Cinema! For March, we put a callout for Irish language films, and were delighted to get some gems, so huge thanks to all who worked hard on these to get them ready for the screening! The whole screening was a delight, and we were delighted to see some new faces on stage introducing their work. As ever, if you missed out or would just like to watch these films again, we’ve put together a list of films from the screening which are currently available online. So before the long weekend ends, why not settle down and enjoy some incredible shorts with a nice cuppa!

Thanks for checking out these films and supporting local talented filmmakers! We’ll be back again soon, at the start of May for our annual collaboration with the Galway Theatre Festival – be sure to come along to see some of the creative ways filmmakers create shorts in one take! The last few years have been amazing to see how people rise to the challenge, and this year will be no different! Keep an eye on our social media for more details.

That’s all for now!
