Irish Short Film Festival Malta Edition 2016
The EuroMediaForum, in conjunction with Jameson Irish Whiskey and Villa Bologna, will be hosting an Irish Short Film Festival on Saturday the 30th of January at 18:30. Curated by Eibh Collins of IndieCork Festival, Irish Film London and The Galway Film Fleadh, a selection of some of the best Irish shorts has been prepared and they will be screened for the very first time on the night.
Jameson Irish Whiskey presents The Irish Short Film Festival Malta Edition, a new concept to Short Film Cinema which is an alternative to long queues and the hustle and bustle of cinemas, where you can relax in a baroque styled building in a tranquil setting and where a diverse programme of Irish short films will unfold in front of you.
Curated by Eibh Collins of IndieCork Festival, Irish Film London and The Galway Film Fleadh, a selection of some of the best Irish shorts has been prepared and they will be screened for the very first time on the night. Miss Collins said: “With the quality of Irish short films becoming world renowned, I think it is important for us to continue to showcase our national work to an increasingly more international audience. This is why I am particularly honoured to be able to exhibit these shorts to a brand new audience in Malta.” Hosted by Emma Marie Sammut, the Irish Film Fest celebrates how short film cinema emanating from Ireland is a journey of discovery in the land of mist and magical landscapes. Like Irish landscapes the films being screened are varied, genre-defying and fascinating, from narrative to experimental; and also animation. This festival is a unique alternative film distribution, exhibition platform as these short films are not screened at local cinemas or TV, and additionally the audience will be given the opportunity to vote for the best film.
Entrance is €10 including wine, canapés and popcorn. For bookings please text on 99454066 or email email@example.com.
This event is being done with the support of Villa Bologna, Jameson Irish Whiskey, and Euro Media Forum.
