Happenings and Le Cool in association with Future Shorts present the Future Shorts Festival Autumn Season 2013 in The Freemason’s Hall on Thursday! Looks amazing!
The current exhibition in The Gallery of Photography looks well worth popping in for. Mayo born, Tom Wood, or the Photie man as he became known locally, takes us through 4 decades of portraits of strangers and friends and family.
Check out The Works on RTE One tonight, John Kelly interviews Tom Wood about his work and the ‘Men and Women’ exhibition at the gallery
NEW SHORT FILM CONTEST!!
This Sunday marks the very first Firehouse Film Contest in MART, Rathmines. The contest is hosted by comedian Conor O’Toole (and his mate Simon!) and they are inviting filmmakers to submit films of any level of production value that have been made in the last month to the competition. There’s a awards on the night and entry is free to everyone. So come along! This Sunday 1st December at 6pm!
This promotional short film for Dublin’s new tiny department store Makers & Brothers & Others made me a bit giddy. I see SO many of these types of vids on vimeo that sometimes I get weary of them but this one is so effective & well made (by Albert Hooi) with music by the gorgeous Lisa Hannigan, it’s a pleasure to behold.
So, here’s the deal on Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”: in theory, it could’ve been released this year and there was even some rumblings of an appearance at New York Film Festival last month, before it was ultimately decided to wait until 2014. So, what to do until then? Well, you could dive into our feature Trailer Deconstruction: Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ or you could enjoy something else brand new from the director, which finds him once again working with a longtime pal and associate.
We were over the moon to find out that (Vancouver based) Irish filmmaker Eoin Duffy's latest short animation, The Missing Scarf, has been longlisted for an Oscar. AN OSCAR!!
We screened Eoin’s beautiful short film On Departure at this summer’s Castlepalooza festival in the Ballroom Cinema and it went down a treat, so basically what we’re saying is, we’re WAY ahead of the academy!
Congratulations Eoin and team!!
