Recap April 2017

Every year at Little Cinema, we put on a few special screenings aside from our regular programming. Among them, the One Take Film Challenge stands out as perhaps the most interesting. As a collaboration with the amazing Galway Theatre Festival, we challenge filmmakers to work within the same rules as live theatre, as in, their film must be made in just one take, with the option to start over disallowed! Each year, we get some amazing entries, and we’re consistently amazed at how people rise to the challenge. This year was no different, and we were lucky to screen a fantastic, varied line-up of short films to a packed house at the Roisin Dubh last week. Here’s a reminder of the films we screened.

1. Damn Chuggers, submitted by Kenny Gaughan.

Another hilarious comedy sketch from our very own Kenny, about a mans struggle with a charity collector.
