St. Patrick’s Day Festival 2008
14th & 16th March, 2008
In conjunction with the St. Patrick’s Day Festival, Filmbase hosted a range of film-related activities at the Cinemobile, parked on Merrion Square, over the Paddy’s Day weekend.
Irish short films, suitable for all ages, were screened throughout the day on Sunday 16th March. Also on the Sunday, Peter “Magic” Johnston presented a filmmaking workshop, ‘In at the Deep End’. This workshop, suitable for ages 12+, featured words and advice from the 15 Second Film Festival Pioneer on practical filmmaking.
Filmbase, in association with Cineworld Cinemas and Samson Films, was also delighted to present a special free screening of the Oscar® nominated Irish feature, Once, that was followed by a post-show talk with the filmmakers.
