Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

The Director, Kevin Liddy will participate in a post-screening Q&A.

In his long-awaited new work, The Suffering Kind, multi-award-winning director Kevin Liddy moves away from the stark Irish countryside which defined his earlier films (Horse, Soldier’s Song and Country) to an urban setting in upstate New York. Filmed by Oscar-nominated Declan Quinn, this intimate drama about an inner city priest and a sanitation worker trying to maintain his sobriety, is about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us.

Kevin’s first cinema short, Horse, is a muscular, poetic evocation of 1960s rural Ireland about a father’s inability to communicate with his young son, magnificently photographed by Donal Gilligan.

 

THE SUFFERING KIND: 26 MINUTES, IRELAND-U.S.A., 2014, COLOUR,D-CINEMA HORSE: 30 MINUTES, IRELAND, 1993,COLOUR, 35MM

Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes are pleased to announce the creation of a unique and exciting scheme, Film Limerick.

 

The Film Limerick project presents a fantastic opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to get their films made with both funding and industry support. This funding initiative aims to nurture creative filmmaking, and at the same time facilitating the long term goal of encouraging both established and emerging filmmakers to Limerick.

 

Film Limerick is seeking Ireland’s exciting filmmaking talent to produce short films using Limerick as a location. Two successful applicants for the awards receive up to €15,000 in cash towards the production budget for their film. Each production also receives advice and support for making the films. The first screening of the two shorts will take place in Limerick as part of Limerick City of Culture 2014, and the successful filmmakers will be encouraged to submit their films to festivals both in Ireland and abroad. In addition the two shorts will be used as part of Limerick City’s bid for European City of Culture 2020.

 

At the heart of the Film Limerick project is the aim to shine a spotlight on Limerick as a film destination and to enable Limerick to realise its potential as a film producing hub. This will facilitate the long term goal of encouraging both established and emerging filmmakers to use Limerick as a location. It also aims to develop a number of projects that form part of the legacy for Limerick in 2014 during its year as National City of Culture.

 

Film Limerick is now open for entries and are looking for filmmakers who are driving the genre of short film forward through inspirational and innovative works. Whether you are just starting out or you have been making films for years, this is your chance to shine.

 

The closing date for applications is: 3pm Monday 1st  September 2014.

A couple of months go Maeve McGrath (Producer/Actor), Dave Burns (The Royal) and Limerick Film Festival’s Simon McGuire were interviewed by Grey Heron Media’s Diarmuid McIntyre for their Cultural Passions Radio programme. This episode was recorded at the Theatre Royal Site which is the location of the future Royal Project for Film and Visual Arts.

 

The episode concentrated on the venue as well as the ever growing film industry in Limerick. A number of areas of the industry were discussed while also taking a walk through and around what was one of the finest examples of the vintage cinema spaces Limerick had.

 

The radio programme is on at 5:40pm Sunday 27th on Lyric FM and is on Limerick’s Live 95FM durning the week.

 

Well done to Diarmuid and the team at Grey Heron Media.
