Screen Ireland has announced the launch of a new weekly series of ‘Director’s Picks’ to showcase Screen Ireland-supported shorts on the RTÉ Culture website.

Each week, an established Irish director will introduce a short film of their choice made by another filmmaker, describing why they have chosen the short film and what makes it stand out.

Kicking off the series is Vivarium director Lorcan Finnegan, who has chosen the animated short film Fear of Flying, written and directed by his brother, animator Conor Finnegan.

Directors across documentary, drama and comedy, from Ross Whitaker to Cathy Brady will be showcasing their Director’s Picks each Saturday on the RTÉ Culture website over the coming weeks.

The series follows on from a successful partnership of daily Irish Shorts on RTÉ Culture since lockdown began, to celebrate Irish short filmmakers and entertain audiences during these stressful times.

You can find the full line-up of RTÉ Culture/Screen Ireland shorts here.
