A voluntary committee behind the 4th annual Wexford Documentary Film festival has come up with a smorgasbord of delights for cinema fans in the Stella Maris Centre in Kilmore over the weekend of Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11. A selection of films from top national and international makers will all be shown free of charge thanks to a partnership with the non-profit Cinema Politica organisation and the generosity of some independent directors as well as local sponsors from Kilmore Quay and around County Wexford.
One of the unique features will be a series of talks and discussions time-tabled to take place five minutes afer films end. The festival focus is on films of an environmental nature along with films about human rights and social justice issues but there are also some Director's Cuts and a three-minute short challenge with an entry deadline of the end of August.
This year's festival will feature two workshops by Film Director Helen Williams on the topic of script writiing and by Liam Bates on music in film.
A screening of the film 'Atlantic' by Richard O'Donnell dealing with issues around fishing and the environment, is also booked out. Other films will include 'Everyday Rebellion', 'Have You Seen the Arana', 'Hit and Stay', 'Life is Waiting', 'Picking Up the Threads', 'Razor Fish', 'Song of the Sea', 'The Divide', 'The Hand That Feeds' and 'We Are Legion'.
