Making the Cut

Nemeton TV Graduate Films selected for Lispole, Guth Gafa and Fingal Film & Arts Festival
03 Aug 2017 :
The selected films have been crafted by students of the Higher Diploma in TV and Digital Media Production course, run by WIT in association with Nemeton TV and Údarás na Gaeltachta.

Sarah McCoy’s film ‘Is Cuimhin Liom’/’I Remember’ has been selected for best student documentary in the areas of human rights, social and environmental issues at the Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival.

'Is Cuimhin Liom’/'I Remember' is a touching, intimate and surprisingly humorous portrait of Gerald Linehan as he and his family come to terms with his Alzheimer’s disease. Gerard’s family live in Ballincollig although he hails from Listowel, Co. Kerry. A great character with many stories and songs, Gerard was a famous boxer and footballer in his day and a great friend of John B Keane, whose son is featured in the film. His son Donal is one of Ireland’s most well-known rugby commentators and journalists. The film also features Gerald’s wife and daughter as they recount humorous incidents from their lives together and deal with the sadness of his recent loss of his short term memory.

Fiona Griffin’s film ‘Danny’ has been selected for the Lispole Festival. The multi talented filmmaker directed and edited a charming film about Danny Garrett from Lispole in Dingle who has maintained the traditional craft of chair-making. The craft is dying but Danny is keeping it alive, making eloquently crafted chairs in his workshop for locals and people further afield. This is a touching and humorous portrait of a unique man.

Deirdre Orme and Pat Phelan’s film ‘Jim of the Mill’ has been selected for the Fingal Film Festival. The Jim of the Mill pub is situated in Upperchurch near Thurles and is run by farming family Jim and Kae Ryan. They open their home with its flag-stoned kitchen, parlour and bar to the public once a week. Locals and many more from further afield fill the idyllic rural house for a mighty musical session each Thursday evening. In the film Pat and Deirdre capture the essence and craic of these unique music sessions with lively interviews from Jim, his talented musical daughters and locals.
