Fastnet Film Festival Announces 2017 Programme

The Schull-based festival in Co. Cork is dedicated to showcasing the best of short film, and will screen 258 titles from May 24th-28th this year, with a range of Q&As, interviews and masterclasses also scheduled.

Short films include ‘Love is a Sting’ written by Oscar-winning Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer) and directed by Vincent Gallagher (Second to None). Gallagher’s own ‘Second to None’ which earned him the IFTA for Best Animation this year is also set to screen, as well as his fellow nominee Kealan O’Rourke’s ‘The Lost Letter’, featuring the vocal talents of Kate Winslet.

Others include ‘Groundless’ (Eimear Callaghan), which picked up the award for Best First Short Drama at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh, Oscar-nominated Naomi Sheridan’s ‘We Have Each Other’ and many more titles from up-and-coming talent. Click the link below to access the full programme.
