(An)Other Irish Cinema

'(An)Other Irish Cinema' is a new project involving fellow filmmakers Donal Foreman, Rouzbeh Rashidi and myself. We've grouped ourselves together under this label to create a platform for joint screenings showcasing our work and, in so doing, hopefully proposing the possibility of an/other filmmaking culture in Ireland. Although our films are very different, we're united by several important common factors. We've all made a large number of very low budget films on our own initiatives, prioritising creative freedom over economic concerns. We're all intensely engaged with the history of non-mainstream cinemas. And we're all committed to formal exploration and experimentation in our work.

For further details of this initiative, please visit our new blog:

Details of our first Dublin screenings will be announced very soon, watch this space!
