About the event
Lee and John will join us on Culture Night to talk about their impressive new short film Ghost Train. Premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this year, this event will offer you a chance to not only see this new short film but to hear from the creatives involved in making this ambitious short film. Not only is this an atmospheric horror film but the production values and design would rival many of the big budget productions we see on our cinema screens. Lee and John run Rank Outsider Productions and are no strangers to Filmbase having produced the Filmbase/RTE Short Film Billy & Chuck a few years ago. We’re delighted to see them move onto bigger budget productions and know that world domination is just around the corner!
This event is perfect for anyone interested in making short films and is suited for ages 16+. It’s a free event but we will be taking advance bookings so if you’d like to book a place (or two) at this event make sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and contact number. Please note if you do book in advance you must arrive at Filmbase by 6.20pm at the latest to secure your place. Any tickets not collected at this stage will be given to those on the door.
About Ghost Train
Written and Directed by Lee Cronin
Produced by John Keville and Ulla Simonen for Rank Outsider and MADE
Once a year, estranged brothers Michael and Peter make a reluctant pilgrimage to the old fairground yard where their friend Sam went missing when they were boys. Both mens’ lives are coloured by what happened the day their friend was sucked inside the Ghost Train, never to return. This year, Michael has something to tell Peter that will cast fresh light on the incident, something that will change their lives even more than that fateful day 30 years ago…
