Fingal Film Festival 2014 Programme unveiled
10 Sep 2014 :
Fingal Film Festival, which takes place between Friday September 26th and Sunday September 28th, have announced their 2014 programme, premiere screenings and industry workshops.

The festival kicks off with a screening of Irish feature documentary One Ocean: No Limits, which follows a young novice Irish rower through the highs and lows of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean from Morocco to Barbados as part of a crew of six. That evening, the festival will officially open with the Irish premiere of Gia Copolla’s debut feature Palo Alto, starring James Franco and Emma Roberts. Saturday’s progamme will include award-winning Colombian film Jardín de Amapolas, which tells the story of a farmer and his son forced into the dangerous but lucrative world of cultivating poppies following their exile by rebels. Irish docudrama A Terrible Beauty tells the story of the men and women of the Easter Rising - the ordinary Irish volunteer, British solder and innocent civilians caught up in a conflict many did not understand. The Saturday evening feature film is coming of age tale Calloused Hands, the tale of talented young baseball player Josh trying to ignore the violence at home and do whatever it takes to rise up out of Miami’s roughest neighbourhood. Sunday afternoon’s feature will be Iranian drama feature The Corridor, followed that evening by feature documentary Dah Zivota, which focuses on twelve babies born to the civil war in Bosnia Herzegovina who were deprived of oxygen due to air and ground blockades. The festival will close with Blitzfood, a comedy about hate, in which volatile lost soul Perigrin Ship staggers through a nervous maze of self-inflicted disasters. These feature length films will be accompanied by a programme of short films including animation and Irish language submissions.

In addition to screenings, the festival is offering a number of workshops. Award-winning animation company Boulder Media (The Amazing World of Gumball, Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja) will host the Animation Workshop, led by Emmy-nominated Robert Cullen (Friday 26th September). A workshop on Sound Design and Supervision will be lead by Niall Brady of Screen Scene Post Production House, whose recent film credits include Frank and What Richard Did, and Steve Fanagan of Ardmore Sound and Screen Scene, whose credits include Albert Nobbs, The Guard and Game of Thrones Series 1 (Saturday 27th September).
