First SHORT SHORTS and IRISH FLASH Series Announced.
25 Apr 2001 :
As reported on their website (www.filmboard.ie), Bord Scannán na hÉireann / the Irish Film Board has announced the first series of Short Shorts and Irish Flash.

"Short Shorts aims to add to the range and scope of Irish short film-making and to encourage talent in all areas of film production. Film-makers are invited to send proposals for brillant, imaginative, eye-catching films from one to three minutes long. Short Shorts should work with all the high impact power of ads, but without a product to sell. They could be strange, witty, unexpected, colourful, mini-narratives, abstractions with music, arguments, jokes, messages.

Short Shorts were selected by Damien O'Donnell (director of 35 Aside and East is East), Mick Hannigan (the director of the Cork Film Festival) and Rod Stoneman (Bord Scannán na hÉireann / the Irish Film Board). A total of twelve Short Shorts and seven Irish Flash projects have been selected for production. Film Board member and Short Shorts panelist Mick Hannigan felt the response to the Short Shorts launch was "wonderfully gratifying". He said that "Filmmakers responded to this 3-minute discipline with great invention, employing a wide variety of styles and approaches."
