Downpour

Downpour

7pm Thursday 14th March

Theme: “Storytelling”

This March we decided to get back to basics and look at the art of storytelling through the medium of film. We were delighted to be joined by filmmakers Claire Dix and Cathy Brady who presented a selection of their work and took part in a post-screening Q&A talking about the development of these three diverse films. Below is a list of the shorts that were screened on the night.
