Opening Night Line-Up

Park Life

Produced by Clones native Lee McMahon and starring Monaghan’s own Pat Deery. When Daniel and Anto, two social parasites, are drinking in the morning hours of a timid public park, they happen to see an elderly lady, Florence, take a seat on a distant bench. However, as the young wolf attempts to charm her into lowering her guard, he soon realises that he has bitten off more than he can chew with our cunning heroine.

The Boring Diary of Frances Noone
This new comedy short stars Joanne Brennan, from Co. Monaghan. She has appeared in RTE’s Rebellion, RAW and Blood Relations (Documentary 2009) as well as various stage productions and short films.

The pen is mightier than the ruler. It's 1987 in Northern Ireland and France's Noone is ten years old and terminally bored. When Frances Noone's cruel teacher McEvilly tells her to write a diary of her weekend to read out in class Frances panics. Her life is so boring. There is nothing to do but watch the street from her window. When she goes to stay with her granny she realises her new neighbour is McEvilly. What McEvilly doesn't know is that her own secret antics with the headmaster will become the contents of Frances's diary to be read on Monday morning.

Members of the cast and crew from both of the above short films will be in attendance.

Stutterer: Winner, Academy Award 2015 for Best Live Action Short Film
For a lonely typographer, an online relationship has helped him mask his cruel speech impediment. Now he is faced with the daunting prospect of finally bringing that relationship into the real world, a roller-coaster ride of joy, doubt, and romance in the digital age.
