The Weather Report screens tonight in Galway as part of Culture Night. An Taibhdhearc tonight plays host to a series of short films, kicking off at half seven. If you are in Galway you should definetly head down. The selection of shorts plays at 7.30pm, 8.15pm, 9pm and 9.45pm. The line-up is: Rubaí, The Weather Report , Somewhere Down the Line , The Usual and Rival Chivalry.

This screening marks the beginning of a busy few weeks for my brothers short, TWR will be screening at a host of festivals at home and abroad. It has its North American premiere also today at The San Francisco Irish Film Festival as part of a very select bunch of shorts.

Also included on that list and screening at that festival is The Last Days of Peter Bergmann, which is continuing to screen at festivals.

As well as the screening in California, it is screening in Athens as part of the Athens International Film Festival. Director Ciaran Cassidy is in the greek capital for the event as a guest of honour by invitation of the Irish Ambassador. He’s probably reading this eating some feta right now…

Last year I edited my brothers short film ‘The Weather Report’. The film has its world premiere this coming saturday as part of the Belfast Film Festival. As well as that exciting prospect, the film was also recently accepted into the fifth annual Limerick Film Festival.
This year the festival, run by editor Simon Maguire, has expanded out from its LIT origins and into the city as part of Limericks City of Culture status. The festival has several strings to its bow, Professional equipment and industry workshops, Film screenings, Guest speaker talks and Keynote speeches as well as an infamous Short Film Awards Night.
Last week they announced the nominations for the short film awards. I’m delighted that ‘The Weather Report’ was nominated in 3 categories; Best Director; Best Camera;Best Overall. It would be great for everyone involved in the film if it were to pick up an award but especially for my brother Paul who directed the film.
