Originally founded by Wicklow artist Brigid O’Brien, this year’s festival is a collaboration between Mermaid Arts Centre and Noel Mac Aoidh, Head of Film Department at BIFE (Bray Institute of Further Education). Mermaid Arts Centre is excited to reveal that the theme of the Wicklow Film Festival 2019 is Turning Points.
“Film is frivolous, serious, absurd and combines every emotion that we can experience. A good movie can transport us to a fantastical world or wake us into action in one. We all have a favourite film or story that reminds us of a place or a person we love”. Noel Mac Aoidh
Turning Points is an attempt to explore the transformative effect of cinema and how these films changed/shaped the lives, careers and journeys of six filmmakers; Noel Mac Aoidh, Janna Kemperman, Kate McCullough, Sal Stapleton, Michael Donnelly and Karla Healion.
Screenings will be accompanied by an engaging post-film discussion with the filmmakers.
