The IFI Family Festival 2017 runs from August 25th to 27th, for a full weekend of fun including screenings, workshops, events and some very special guests including Laureate na nOg PJ Lynch who will be doing a Big Picture event and launching the festival!
There will also be a screening of a series of short films from around the world on Saturday August 26th, including several from Irish artists. Short Tales 1 is at 11.00 on Saturday, followed by Short Tales 2 at 13.00.
Joining Dots, a short film by our very own Junior Storyboard Revisionist Fiona Ryan, which she completed while studying at IADT and for which she was awarded Best Writer at the Animation Dingle Festival this year, will be screening as part of Short Tales 1.
The story is based on a little girl called Luna who makes constellations which come alive in the night sky. She tries to show her Dad, but he struggles to understand her imaginary world.
