Earlier this year, my short BEAT AROUND THE BUSH played at the Nickel Film Festival in St. John’s Newfoundland, and I’m excited that they have selected the film to showcase at the Kerry Film Festival in Ireland.
Kerry Film Festival is an internationally recognized Irish Short Film Festival. The festival takes place in the picturesque town of Killarney, Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland from the 19th-22nd of October 2017.

Through our annual Film Festival and year-round programme of events including our Summer Open Air Cinema, our goal is to create new and exciting film experiences, create a hub of film creativity and appreciation in Kerry, champion the work of local and national emerging filmmakers and promote the county as a major filmmaking destination.
While I won’t be in attendance, I do love Ireland a wee bit. Or a big wee bit. Pictures included from my last (and only) visit.
