FROM THE VAULTS: THE GFS FILM GROUP RESTORATION

Director: VARIOUS


The Guinness Film Society Film Group was an amateur filmmaking group set up in 1958. Its core members were Ries Hoek (camera) and Guinness staffers John Gleeson (editor) and Mike Lawlor (producer). The IFI Irish Film Archive has now meticulously restored three of the group’s four films.
