Keeling’s Pub, Donabate, Co. Dublin

This year there will be two nights of short film including a night dedicated to Women In Film, with a feature film presentation on the third and final night.

We’re delighted to announce our feature film for 2019

 

Float like a butterfly

From the producers of Once and Sing StreetFloat Like a Butterfly is a powerful and timely story of a girl’s fight for freedom and belonging.  Some people say it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose.  But for Frances (Hazel Doupe) losing is not an option – at stake is her own freedom, her mother’s honour and her father’s faith.  This unmissable multi award-winning Irish film shot in West Cork is about championing the underdog and features stellar performances from an outstanding cast, including rising star Hazel Doupe.
