Liverpool Irish Festival - IndieCork Irish Shorts Programme 2

Excellent reception for Una Feely's IndieCork Shorts Programme 2 at FACT tonight. Highlights included Mairtin de Barra's 'Atrophy' and Lorcan Finnegan's 'Foxes', as well as Oonagh Kearney's 'There's a Tin Cup Rolling'. My disgraceful 'Furniture' film went down well and Rinky's 'Salmon of Knowledge found many new friends! Great chat afterwards with Cathy Brady and some really appreciative punters. Thanks again to Una for the invite to participate and present. Thanks also to Jake from the Liverpool Irish Festival. Cathy and I head back to Ireland tomorrow, but the festival film screenings continue with three films themed around 'The Irish Revolutionary' and end with a screening (Thursday 17th in FACT) of 'Adam and Paul', after which there'll be a Q+A with Director Lenny Abrahamson! Altogether, a great trip to Liverpool! We shall be back!

Liverpool Irish Festival - DQ presents Irish Shorts Programme 2!

For my sins, IndieCork's Una Feely has given me the task of presenting tonight's Liverpool Irish Festival's Irish Shorts 2 programme at the very impressive Liverpool FACT at 18.30. Films include 'Atrophy', 'Foxes' 'Two Wheels Good', along with Rinkydink's 'Salmon of Knowledge' and my disgraceful 'Furniture - Murder and Love'. All prayers welcome!

Liverpool Irish Film Festival - Screening One

Irish Shorts Screening One at FACT in Bold Street Liverpool last night - nice crowd! 'Rubai' and Clare Brady's 'Wasted' probably the highlights of the show. 'Mister Heaney, a wee portrait' went down grand and DVD for 'leitronium' glitched, leading to a rather fractured-narrative experimental result - weird! 'Salmon of Knowledge' and 'furniture' tonight - may the DVD Gods shine upon us!

Thanks to Una Feely for the invite to participate!

Skin in The Game

Donald Taylor Black's documentary 'Skin in The Game' (2012) was shown in The Pavilion, Dun Laoghaire last night (091013), to an enthusiastic audience of 120 people! Several people in IADT were surprised to see me onscreen, with my long hair... My Gawd! Only two years ago - seems like a lifetime!
