Clones Film Festival announce special Wings Over Carn event
Clones Film Festival turns 20 this year and the festival crew has been busy planning a very special programme to mark this important milestone.

As part of the celebrations, a unique event is taking place on Friday, October 28th, with Festival patron and celebrated Clones author Pat Mc Cabe, and renowned poet, Ted McCarthy, another Clones native.

Wings Over Carn is set to be an evening of reflection, conversation, music, and general celebration of the artform that is film.

Among the special guests who will also participate in the event is actor David “Dai” Bradley who starred as Billy Casper in the critically acclaimed 1969 classic Kes, directed by Ken Loach. In the words of Pat McCabe: “Come the end of the month in Clones, just look up and say ‘Jasus!’ as the wings of Kes span out across the town. And the whole lot of us start interrupting so as to be able to get in bits concerning our ‘favourite film’. Mine’s Rio Bravo or maybe ‘The Manster’, about a hairy fellow who lives in a Japanese volcano, with two heads. What’s yours? Indeed, if it comes to that, what’s your favourite film song? Come along and tell us - don’t be shy.”

David Bradley will also introduce a special screening of Kes on Saturday, 29th of October at 11am.

Also participating in the event is Julien Temple, acclaimed director and pioneer of music video as an art form.  Julien’s work incudes features such as Pandemonium and Bullet, iconic musicals like Absolute Beginners and The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle, and documentaries such as Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten and The Filth & The Fury. His recent work includes Crock of Gold – A Few rounds with Shane McGowan, which won the Jury Prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival. 

Acclaimed Cavan film and theatre director Philip Doherty will be in attendance. Philip is a former winner of the Clones Film Festival Short Film Challenge, and more recently director of Redemption of a Rogue, which was described by Leslie Felperin in The Guardian as “a chucklesome black comedy” and which won Best Irish First Feature at the Galway Film Fleadh. Read our interview with Philip Doherty discussing Redemption of a Rogue.

Victoria Mary Clarke will also be a guest on the evening. Writer, artist, journalist, and broadcaster, she has written for newspapers and magazines globally, including Paris Vogue, The Sunday Times, The Times, The Guardian, and Les Inrockuptibles, and has published two best-selling books, A Drink With Shane MacGowan, and Angel in Disguise

The evening will also feature music by Larry Beau, songwriter and contemporary folk artist described by Metro as “a starry-eyed amalgam of Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, and a wandering Irish minstrel”.

Clones host for the evening will be Fergal McGrath, BAFTA shortlisted editor and long-time friend of Clones Film Festival.

Taking place in the intimate setting of the Courthouse Cinema, Wings Over Carn is guaranteed to be a brilliantly authentic evening of entertainment and insight.  Already there is a high level of interest in this event and the venue capacity is limited.

Tickets will be available on www.clonesfilmfestival.com from the 15th of October. Clones advises those interested to book early to avoid disappointment.

Details of this and the full weekend programme events will be available on www.clonesfilmfestival.com and on the Clones Film Festival Facebook page shortly.
