Traditionally, the Fastnet Film Festival takes place annually in Schull, County Cork, a selection of cinema under the shadow of Mount Gabriel. In May 2021, the festival will be delivered entirely online, with over 300 shorts from Ireland and abroad available to view completely free this week.
This week marks Fingal Inclusion Week, an initiative led by Fingal County Council and the Fingal Public Participation Network. Over 35 events will take place across the County of Fingal from Monday 16th November to Saturday 21st November, all of which are free to attend and open to all.
As part of Fingal Inclusion Week this year, the Bleeding Pig Film Festival in association with the Bleeding Pig Cultural Festival, are presenting a free online programme of short Irish films. These shorts are about shifting attitudes, highlighting gender and LGBT issues in Ireland, include comedy and drama alike, presenting different perspectives under a common theme- the importance of acceptance and inclusion.
