Dublin Short Film Festival iffy Takes Place This Weekend
iffy, the short film festival on the Liffey, has announced a dazzling programme for its 4th edition on Saturday, November 23 at The Pearse Centre Theatre, Dublin 2.
The bi-annual festival is known for its carefully curated, easily digestible selection of movies and for its intimate and relaxed vibe. The latter allows audiences to mingle and chat about the films they have seen at the event over a glass of wine.
This edition of iffy features a eclectic selection of ten short films, eight of which are from Ireland. Also screening is a French Canadian animation and a wonderful experimental piece from North Carolina, USA.
Speaking about the movies being shown, festival organiser and programmer Duncan McKenna said in a statement: “It’s a very interesting line-up – lots of interpretative dance and female writers and directors selected without any express intention. From dancing with dead bodies to hiding them, November’s show is going to be a wonderful mix of shorts that will entertain and delight in equal measure.”
The short films this year include the multiple award-winning surreal comedy Mother directed by Natasha Waugh. Also featuring is the fascinating Five Letters to the Stranger Who Will Dissect My Brain by writer/director Oonagh Kearney. The latter won the Best Irish Short Film prize at the Dublin International Film Festival 2019.
iffy will also showcase Jack Thornton’s Love Lane United, a proof of concept comedy short about a group of underachievers who decide to start a Sunday League football team.
The full programme can be found here. Tickets to iffy cost €10 and are on sale at https://iffy.ie/tickets/. They include a reception preceding the screenings with mulled wine and hot chocolate followed by a networking evening in the Trinity City Hotel.
