Detours en Cinecourt
My short film ‘Uisce Beatha’ will screen at the ‘Detours en Cinecourt’ festival in Saint-Geniès-Bellevue, Toulouse, France in June.
The film was subtitled into French for the purposes of the festival by Anne Reidy.
The festival runs from the 10-15 of June, and more information can be found on the festival website.
Here are some photos taken at the 2013 Lewiston-Auburn Film Festival, held in Maine, USA.
Three of my short films were screened, and I took part in two Q&As.
Huge thanks to everyone at the festival!
