This group is focused on bringing people together to enjoy films at festivals & venues across Cork, from the Triskel Arts Centre to the Gate Cinema. Members have the option to stay on for a chat/ coffee/ bite to eat after each film.
If anyone fancies coming to this preview screening, I'll be at the Gate from 18:25. The film starts at 18:45. Lynne :)
PREVIEW SCREENING OF ‘GAZA’ IN SUPPORT OF GAZA RED CARPET HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL APPEAL
'Poignant and powerful documentary about day-to-day life in the war-torn city of Gaza'
Cork Film Festival has teamed up with Fine Point Films to host a special preview screening of 'Gaza' in The Gate Cinema, with all donations going towards supporting the Gaza Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival appeal. Tickets will be available on the door, on a ‘Donate-What-You-Can’ and first come first served basis.
'Gaza' brings us into a unique place beyond the reach of television news reports to reveal a world rich with eloquent and resilient characters, offering us a cinematic and enriching portrait of a people attempting to lead meaningful lives against the rubble of perennial conflict.
The documentary filmmakers behind Gaza, directed by Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell and produced by Brendan J. Byrne of Belfast based production company Fine Point Films, have launched an appeal to restore a film festival in Gaza. 'Gaza', which had its World Premiere at Sundance, won the inaugural Pull Focus Award for best new Irish documentary at the Docs Ireland film festival and the team donated their prize money to support the Gaza Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival appeal. The Red Carpet Film Festival in Gaza showcases films which focus on human rights issues and aims to provide Palestinians with a rare opportunity to explore their dreams and to enjoy a little well deserved escapism.
