Tralee Filmmaker Bertie Brosnan's new short art-films Last Service & Forgotten Paradise funded by the Cork City Arts now available online for free

Tralee Film maker Bertie Brosnan whose previous films Sineater & Jacob Wrestling With The Angel have been picked up by internationally-owned shorts network Shorts TV now sees two of his excellent short films that were funded by the Cork Citys Arts Fund available to view online for free!
Bertie Brosnan’s previous short films: Sineater & Jacob Wrestling With The Angel were picked up earlier this year by internationally-owned shorts network Shorts TV in a non-exclusive deal via the US distribution outfit Bidslate have been critically acclaimed and selected at international film festivals and markets such as 'Cork Film Festival', 'Fastnet Film Festival', 'Kerry Film Festival', 'Cannes Short Film Corner', 'Hollywood North Film Festival', and much more. (Bertie's success was reported by traleetoday earlier this year and you can read the full article here)
Director, Bertie says on these two short films: “It was a wonderful experience creating these films, the budget was only 3,000 euros but I was able to harness the creative powers of small crews and the wonderfully talented Charlie Ruxton & Stephen O' Connor. As a writer, I am always interested in characters that have a depth to them that isn't always apparent. As a society, we judge and marginalize 'types' of people in a matter of seconds, as we never take the time to understand a little about them. With these two shorts films, I am hoping to shed some light on two characters that our society has preconceived judgement.”
In what is about to be a very busy and undoubtedly successful period for this Tralee born film maker with the release of his feature film Con in the next few weeks (of which you can read the first Irish based review right here!) Bertie's rich catalogue of short and features are sure to reap the critical acclaim deserved and will also reach a larger audience due to their availability online.
