Underground Cinema Short Irish Film Festival hits Dublin

Dublin is about to play host to its first Underground Cinema Short Irish Film Festival. The event, which will take place in the Screen Cinema on D’Olier Street on September 16th and 17th, aims to bring attention to the most talented and emerging independent film-makers in this country of ours.

Underground Cinema has screened over 100 short Irish films from indigenous film-makers on a monthly basis since September 2009 culminating in a shortlist of 30 which will screen at the festival.

The 30 shorts will also be eligible for the Underground Cinema Awards which will take place in Fitzpatricks Castle, Killiney on September 18th. The awards will be presented by Labour Party leader Eamon Gilmore.

A number of well known names feature amongst films to be featured including Fair City’s Tommy O’Neill and Niamh Shaw, Hugh O’Connor, Alan Walsh and Don Baker.

Tickets are priced at €10 and can be purchased online or on the day of each screening at Screen cinema. The screenings begin at 7:45pm. Best of luck to all involved. It’s great to see Irish visions light up the silver screen.
