Irish films to be shown in new light


The films of emerging and acclaimed Irish directors are to be shown in a Dublin city centre pub as part of a new series of film nights to promote Irish cinema.

Shebeen Flick, run in association with the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland, is hosting a series of screenings every Tuesday from 7.30pm. The nights also feature talks as well as question and answer sessions with the directors.

Tomorrow’s event opens with Thomas Hefferon introducing his short film The Pool followed by Conor McPherson’s IFTA winner The Eclipse.

Films to be shown later in the month include Alex Fegan’s Man Made Men, Margaret Corkery’s Eamon and a double bill of Conor Horgan’s documentaries Happiness and Fear.

The final screening of the year takes place on Wednesday December 1st to coincide with World Aids Day and will show a charity screening of Mike Casey’s documentary Clown Around Lesotho.

Film night at Shebeen Chic, Georges Street, Dublin is free and open to all.
