This screening follows on from director, Marc-Ivan O’Gorman’s, Culture Ireland sponsored, Video-Art retrospective presented in Delhi earlier this year: http://reflectedlightexhibit.wordpress.com/
Closer to home, the film has been selected for The Kerry Film Festival (Oct 31 – Nov 7) and will screen at 4pm on Monday 2nd November in The Old Presbytery. http://www.kerryfilmfestival.com/INS2.html. To adjudicate the shorts they have lined up a stellar panel of Judges – chief among them is Jeremy Irons, the Oscar winning actor who heads up the Adjudication panel. Marc-Ivan’s previous production, ‘Other’, won best experimental film at the festival in 2007. So who knows, lightning might strike twice?
And finally, the film is also included in the 22nd Foyle Film Festival in Derry, Northern Ireland (20 – 22 November) and will screen on Saturday 28 November at 11.30 at the Nerve Centre. This is a long established festival and winners are made eligible for BAFTA and Oscar nomination!
