Hats off to the good people at the Corona Cork Film Festival which ended another successful edition on Sunday with the annual awards for short films. The event always hosts an array of features and special events. But it remains the place to go if you have a shorter film that you want the world to see. If you read my column on Saturday you will know that Andrew Legge — a real talent — offered a nice piece of whimsey with his agreeable A Kingdom Once Again. Such are the wonders of modern technology that we can show it to you now.
I didn’t find space for Eamonn O’Neill’s Left, which was an honourable winner of best Irish short, in my round up today. That was a mistake. It’s a very touching, mildly disturbing animation concerning two childhood pals whose lives head in different directions. The trailer above should give you some idea what to expect. Keep an eye out for the appearance of the complete film. It’s well worth your attention.
