No One Can Hear You Giggle
Tommorow evening if you happen to be in Dublin, Ireland you should definitely head over to the Temple Bar area to check out the very first Dublin Culture Night. Dublin, in effort to share its rich cultural offerings to the public, will have nearly 40 of its best museums, galleries and studios open until 9pm for the public to take advantage of them. One of the events that will be going on in conjunction will be the latest edition of the Fast Forward Ireland short film contest. This contest is run by Andrew McAvinchey (the brother of my brother-in-law, Paul, who is married to my sister, Becky -- this is who Kelly and I were just visiting in Dublin). Paul and Becky will be assisting Andrew with his fast forward Ireland contests. In fact all of us (Kelly, myself, Becky, Paul) were partcipants in Andrew's latest film which we shot last weekend while enjoying a few pints.
The lastest offering is called "No One Can Hear You Giggle" where you shoot a 3 minute silent short film and edit it in 24 hours. After this contest, Andrew is taking the show on the road to Portugal for their own very first Fast Forward Portugal event as well (for more info go here). I am looking forward to seeing the finalists for this contest which will be shown on the Fast Forward Ireland site on Monday, September 25th. All of the applicants of this contest will also be shown all weekend long on Curved Street (which is pictured above) in Temple Bar. You may also recall that a few weeks ago we posted Paul's film which was a particpant in another Fast Forward Ireland contest. Here is another one for you to check out.
