Line-up Announced for Screen Ireland Short Films at the Galway Film Fleadh
25 Jun 2019 : News Desk
Will Poulter stars in Jack Reynor's directorial debut 'Bainne'
Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland are presenting the world premiere of New Irish Short films at the 31st Galway Film Fleadh, funded under the agency’s Short Stories and Frameworks schemes. 

‘Something Doesn’t Feel Right’, ‘Wrath’, ‘Break Us’ and ‘Twin’ are the live action films produced under the Short Stories scheme premiering at this year’s Fleadh, alongside ‘Abe’s Story’ and ‘Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight’, co-funded under RTÉ and Screen Ireland’s Frameworks scheme for animation.

In addition, this year’s selection will also include a special short film presentation — the World Premiere of the Screen Ireland and Sky Arts co-production of Jack Reynor’s directorial debut, ‘Bainne’, starring Will Poulter.
James Hickey, Chef Executive, Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland said: 

“We are delighted to announce the World Premiere of our latest short films. Nurturing and developing creative talent and ensuring new voices are heard on film is at the heart of Screen Ireland’s role. Our investment in short films is one of the key cornerstones in the development of the next generation of filmmakers. 

We hope that these short films will travel internationally and will be seen by audiences at film festivals around the globe. The recent Academy Award® nomination for ‘Late Afternoon’ directed by Louise Bagnall and funded under the Frameworks scheme is a real example of just how far these shorts can travel.”
