St Patrick's Day 2023 Shorts Programme
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Cork International Film Festival is delighted to present a special Festival programme of Irish, and Cork, film shorts from the most recent edition in November 2022. Fans of Irish culture nationwide can enjoy a free selection of film treats from us as part of the St. Patrick’s Day Festival, which will be available to watch for free on our Digital Festival Platform from 10am Friday 17th until midnight Sunday 19th March.
Meet an elderly woman who finds an ingenious way to get revenge on a condescending meals-on-wheels volunteer in Cork filmmaker Sarah Horgan’s Do-Gooders; watch a eulogy to local spaces, marrying diasporan histories, racial discrimination and political ideologies, magic and music in B+ and Denise Chaila’s Energy. In Mia Mullarkey’s Screen Ireland-funded Safe as Houses, Aggie, a woman with Down Syndrome, offers shelter to a young girl, and in Katarzyna Zimnoch and Pawel Kleszczewski’s In The Beginning Was Water, a girl searches for the Salmon of Knowledge. Finally, in Eoin Duffy’s Screen Ireland-funded animation, Regular Rabbit, the good name of a seemingly regular rabbit falls victim to an unstoppable tide of disinformation.
