IFI and WFT present this inspiring programme of new short films to coincide with International Women’s Day, selected from a significant volume of work submitted by WFT members. While these films couldn’t differ more in style, scope, genre, and theme, they all have one thing in common: they are directed and created by the Irish film industry’s most talented up-and-coming female creatives.
IFI is pleased to provide a space to screen and critically engage with this work. WFT is a voluntary, members-led organisation run by film and TV professionals, representing the creative, business, educational and technical divisions of the Irish audiovisual sector.
The films that will screen on the evening include: Ma (dir. Anne Marie Kelly, 9 mins); The Girl at the End of the Garden (dir. Bonnie Dempsey, 15 mins); No Place (dir. Laura Kavanagh, 7 mins); Catcalls (dir. Kate Dolan, 9 mins); The Shift (dir. Megan K. Fox, 12 mins); Siobhan (dir. Maeve Murphy, 10 mins); Her Name Is… (dir. Lydia McGuinness & Claire Byrne, 10 mins); Sea for Yourself (dir. Gráinne Gavigan, 8 mins)
The films will be introduced by filmmakers and a prize for best film (selected by a WFT jury) will be announced on the night. Full details of the programme will be added shortly.
