29 Aug 2016 : Katie McNeice
The fifth installment of the independent festival based in Swords, Co. Dublin runs from September 30th-October 2nd.

Mark O’Connor’s ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ starring John Connors (Love/Hate) is set to have its Dublin premiere on Friday, September 30th. Doors open at 8pm for wine and press.

Connors takes the lead as the head of a group of young ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ attempting to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale, while chasing the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex.

The 2016 programme features 40 films by emerging local and international filmmakers, which includes content engaging with the 1916 Easter Rising Centenary alongside documentaries, animation, shorts and student projects.

The documentary line-up includes Risteard O'Domhnaill’s ‘Atlantic’, Megan Murphy’s ‘Murphy’s Law’ and Xuban Intxausti ‘s ‘In Dialogue’, made in Belfast in the framework of Europa Transit.

This year’s workshop series include an animation workshop from Stephen Fagan, Founder and Creative Director of Treehouse Republic. This half-day workshop takes place on Friday September 30th and will cover the topics of pre-production, production and post-production, with a focus on SFX and music.

Supervising Sound Editor Niall Brady from Screen Scene leads the Sound Design workshop on Saturday October 1st, with a case study of Lenny Abrahamson’s ‘Room.’ This session will also feature guest speaker Steve Fanagan from Ardmore Sound.

There will also be a series of revolutionary themed films screened at the festival, including ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley.’
