This showcase includes (in alphabetical order):
dir: Ronnie Quinlan (6 minutes/Galway, Ireland)
When social media and online connections seem essential, sometimes the most important connections are lost.
Fin Divilly - Resident Troubadour
dir: Luke Brabazon (11 minutes/Kilkenny & Dublin, Ireland)
A rock and roll documentary through a week of Dublin musician Fin Divilly's life. Rooftops, rivers, dwarf hamsters and doses of lunacy.
dir: John Collins (7 minutes/Limerick, Ireland)
An evocative mood piece that glides gently from classic Georgian townscapes to the lush emerald landscapes of rural Ireland. With narration from Nóirín Ní Riain and music performed by Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin with Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin.
Land of Winter
dir: Tommy Creagh (14 minutes/Kilkenny, Ireland)
A lost young man staggers through Dublin's cold streets desperately trying to find somewhere still serving on a dark winter's night on the brink of snowfall.
dir: Eabha Bortolozzo & Jack Kirwan (4 minutes/Dublin, Ireland)
A day in the life of a barman and his patron. Set in an Irish pub, this animated short is narrated by a voice over compiled from interviews with John B. King and Richard Burton in which they discuss their relationship with alcohol. The animation mirrors the intoxication of the main character; the more alcohol he consumes the more illustrative and evocative the animation becomes.
Zack & Natalie
dir: Walker Morgan & Chris Lane (15 minutes/Brooklyn, NY, USA)
A short about a young relationship.
