GMIT Film Students Present Shorts Dramas and Docs
08 Jun 2009 :
Final year Film and Television students at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) will showcase their work at a special Graduate Screening in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway, on Saturday 13th June.
Twenty-six students of the BA in Film & Television have produced six short films - three dramas and three documentaries, for the end of year annual event.

The afternoon will begin at 2.15pm with a formal reception in the Town Hall lobby, attended by the students’ families, GMIT staff and special guests including representatives from the Film and Television industry.

Newly appointed manager of the Galway Film Centre, Declan Gibbons, will formally open the Screening at 3pm. Each of the films is five minutes duration. The two categories are Drama and Documentary.

The three dramas are:
‘Fallen’. After a fall from grace, is Jeff Behan prepared to compromise his dignity?
‘Swing’. When Lust surfaces, can Love survive?
‘Acquiescence’. Is the monotony of life worth settling for?

The documentaries are:
‘UFOL’. Boyle, Co. Roscommon - an ordinary small town in the West of Ireland that has an extraordinary claim to fame.
‘Waiting for March’. What are BZP party pills? Are they a safer alternative to illegal drugs? Will banning BZP make a difference?
‘Rhyming Couplet’. Kevin and Susan’s journey shows that poetry is the language of love against a Galway backdrop.

Celine Curtin, Co-ordinator of the BA in Film & Television programme, says the screening promises to be a very entertaining two hours.

"We are delighted with the achievements of our graduating students. Despite recessionary times there continues to be an increase in the amount of films being made by young Irish film-makers. These are the times when people turn towards the arts and film is the most accessible and popular of all the arts.”

GMIT’s BA in Film & Television is delivered in partnership with the Galway Film Centre at the Institute’s Cluain Mhuire Creative Arts campus, Monivea Road, Galway City. See www.gmit.ie for further details.
