As we move closer to the end of this very weird 2020, there are slivers of hope forming on the horizon for the local film industry.
Returning for its second year is the Catalyst Film Festival with its focus again on ‘diversity and diverse storytelling.’

(as per the Catalyst Website HERE)

Catalyst International Film Festival will present a film programme that prioritises stories and storytellers currently under-represented on screen and behind the camera.

We want to create a more inclusive industry and films screened here will promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion whether in content, key creative roles or crew.

There will also be panel discussions, workshops and Q&As where topical issues of the day will be enthusiastically debated with filmmakers, guest speakers, industry personnel and audience members. We believe that equality is key to enriching filmmaking and audiences and it is core to this festival.”

If you are a film maker who is interested in presenting your diverse idea for film making to a wide audience then why not check out their submission page HERE and see if your work qualifies for the 2021 event. Or you can still check out last years programme of events as well on the website.

Well done to festival Directors and Programmers Susan Liddy and Venessa Gildea, and all the team who are persevering through these difficult times to give film makers a change to have their work recognized. Long may it last.
