This morning the line-up for the first Sky Road Festival in Clifden was announced. This festival offers something that no other Irish film festival offers and that is a chance to celebrate the diverse range and talent of our documentary television industry. Its probably the thing we do best in this country so its fantastic we finally can get to celebrate it.
Among the films showing at the festival I’m thrilled to have 4 projects that I cut showing.
First up is my brothers short film ‘The Weather Report’ which is showing on the Friday of the festival at 4:30
Saturday morning at 10am, after a very successful festival run abroad we have the Irish premiere of One Ocean No Limits
Then at 3:00pm on Saturday I’m very excited that the world premiere of “From Tee to Green:the story of Irish golf” which I have just finished the offline edit on will be showing for the first time anywhere in the world. I’m looking forward to seeing that on a big screen and finding out what people think of it. It’s a cracking series that I’m quite proud of and its great that it gets to debut at this festival.
Finally on the sunday Irish audiences have another chance to see ‘The Last Days of Peter Bergmann’
The festival is also showing work by some of Irelands leading documentary makers including Anna Rodgers, Paddy Hayes, Pat Collins, David Power, Keith Walsh & Jill Beardsworth, Brian Reddin and Maurice Sweeney.
If you can make it to the festival, it will be really worth it. Its on Fri- Sun 4-6th of September. Best of luck to the organisers and well done on what is a great addition to the Irish festival circuit.
