The Bleeding Pig Film Festival is back for its fifth edition from Monday 11th to Wednesday 13th of September. This year’s venue is the popular St. Patricks Church of Ireland in The Square.

The film festival is facilitated and supported by Bleeding Pig Cultural Festival and managed and programmed by Emma Fagan who runs “Fillum” a company which promotes Irish independent filmmakers.  Emma has commented that her aim for the film festival is “to bring independent cinema to the local community of Donabate and surrounding areas and to facilitate open discussion between filmmakers and audiences”.

 This year’s film schedule will feature two nights of short films, many of which are award-winning and for the first time, and the festival will present a feature film which will screen on Wednesday night.

The festival will launch with an Opening Night reception (invite only) at 6.45 pm on Monday 12th September. Doors open each night at 7.15 pm with screenings kicking off at 7.30 pm sharp. Each screening will be followed by an informal Q&A with the filmmakers.

All screenings are free.
