SCREEN WEXFORD HAS HAD A BUSY 2021!
To celebrate, the team at Screen Wexford would like to announce an end of year Showcase Event taking place in Wexford Art centre on Thursday 2nd December 2021 from 7-9pm. This event will include short films screenings, launch of Screen Wexford’s new website, and is an opportunity to meet the team behind Screen Wexford whilst learn of new and exciting plans for 2022.
This showcase event will include:
NEW VOICES SHORT FILM SCREENING
In December 2020, from a highly competitive slate of submissions, three Wexford based teams were selected to receive production finance; equipment support from lighting company Teach Solais; and a professional mentor to support the filmmakers throughout the production process.
The three winning projects being presented in our showcase are:
‘Sonny, Mammy and Patch the dog’
by Sinead O‘Quigley, Richard Deering and Adam Hart, is a dark comedy about how life can be put back together after a bereavement.
Samsara by Unity, a collaboration between artists Mirona Mara and Jonathan Murphy who have made an animated short about the cyclical nature of life, death and rebirth.
Halted by Robert Tyrell and Joanne Heffernan – a documentary about the everyday lives of the Travelling Community in Wexford.
REMIXING THE ARCHIVE PROJECT
Earlier this year, Screen Wexford ran an exciting new training programme in the field of film archive that invited ambitious early-stage career filmmakers and artists working with the moving image across Wexford, to engage imaginatively with the enormous untapped potential of archive film (from the IFI / BFI / BBC & NI Screen) whilst creating a new archive-inspired piece. The workshop was delivered by Akajava Films in collaboration with the Make Film History project with the support of Screen Skills Ireland. 9 films made during this project will also be screened.
Speaking about the work being screened as part of the showcase, Screen Wexford’s co-ordinator Linda Curtin said that “Wexford has a wealth of creative talent and I’m very excited to share the work produced through our programmes – these short films represent a diversity of subject matter, culture and ethnicity and I hope they inspire others to launch their careers as filmmakers and engage with our Screen Office’.
This event has limited access due to covid restrictions and is invite only. However, we will stream the event online over Zoom. Details as follows:
