One of the great perks about organising a film festival is watching the films that have been submitted. When one of the Irish films on our shortlist goes on to win, not only at our festival, but scores of other festivals, it makes our day!
An Island from 2D animation Irish indie company andmapsandplans had its premiere at Galway Fleadh in 2017 and has been screened at numerous other festivals most notably Clemont Ferrand. It picked up the award for best Irish short film at DAFF 2017. It is going to be screened at the Aesthetica Short Film Festival in the UK on 7-11 November – if you are planning to attend ASFF, be sure to make time to see it!
