Audience March 2019

Below are the links to the available films, so now is your chance to check them out if you missed the evening!

1 Kenny Gaughan – You Can’t Be Sheerios

First up was a comedy sketch by Little Cinema’s Kenny. It was made for last years Galway Theatre Festival, which

involved filmmakers making a film in one take, to replicate the restriction of theatre. The sketch is about the time when Salthill was in lock down ahead of the Ed Sheeran gig in Pearse Stadium!

There is another One Take Challenge taking place this year with the Galway Theatre Festival on 8th May 2019, so if you’re interested in making something for it, get in touch with us 🙂

2 Brendan Tiernan – Stations

Brendan is a writer and musician based in South Sligo and ‘Stations’ is a beautiful song which  comes from his almost
finished album: “Ox Mountain Blues” – influenced by the landscape where he lives.

Thank you to all the filmmakers and the fantastic audience who came along to the night. We can’t stress enough how important it is to have audiences there to provide the inspiration for the filmmakers or Galway and beyond to keep making their art and to continue to push themselves outside of their comfort zone!

Our next screening is the One Take Challenge on 8th May in the Roisin Dubh and then we’ll have a regular Little Cinema on Wed 29th May, followed by the Little Cinema & Galway City of Film 48 Hour Challenge on 9th June 2019 at the Town Hall Theatre!
