Short Film Festival 2017

Film FestivalJoin The Bleeding Pig culture and arts festival for three nights of exceptional Irish Short films. from Monday 4th-Wednesday 6th of September from 8.00 pm. in and sponsored by Keelings of Donabate.
Come along and have a pint and watch some quality films. The film festival was added to our programme of events last year and proved to be hugely entertaining over the course of the three nights. There are very few opportunities to see short films anywhere in Ireland and we are very excited to be involved in this venture to bring films of this calibre to our audience.

The event has been programmed by Emma Fagan.

Emma Fagan works as a freelance professional in PR, Marketing and Social Media. As film is her passion, her main focus is promoting Irish independent filmmakers. She has worked for a number of film festivals in Ireland including three Fingal Film Festivals,  the Dingle Film Festival and the Silk Road Film Festival. She is currently PR and Volunteer Manager with the Dub Web Fest and a contributor to Irish film website Scannain. Emma has worked on the crowdfunding campaign for The Broken Law of Attraction an upcoming thriller by Irish filmmaker Paddy Slattery and most recently on A Break in the Clouds a new short film by Tristan Heanue and Paddy Slattery. This is Emma’s second year curating the Bleeding Pig Film event.

Over the three nights, the schedule will include comedy, mystery, thriller, drama and animation from award-winning films from Fingal Film Festival, Chicago Irish Film Festival, Galway Film Fleadh and many more.
