Kerry Film Festival presents the first Irish short film to be nominated for an Academy Award. A cinematic treat for fans of short film and those who like a good ghost story. Featuring Orson Welles and directed by Hilton Edwards. Orson Welles is driving in the Irish countryside one night when he offers a ride to a man with car trouble. The man relates a strange event that happened to him at the same location. For further details read my piece on this great event here.
This 2016 Irish comedy film written, directed, and co-produced by Peter Foott, was an Irish box office hit and will soon be followed by a six part TV comedy series such was the resounding success of this hilarious movie. Worth catching again on the big screen!

A connection made between heaven and earth in a short film which features two pieces of ‘breathing’ fabric suspended in Muckross Monastery in Killarney. Úna created felt from silk, thread and wool coloured with plant dyes and brought them to the monastery to film them in the place that inspired them. The soundtrack is based on the ‘breathing’ of the fabric as it moves, with the voice and breath of Una herself interspersed with the sounds of nature.
