2013/Ireland (19 min)
Director: Declan O'Mahony  
Virtus is a stylized documentary that highlights a diverse group of individuals who are true champions of individuality and creativity. Their true inherent sense of aesthetics is delicate, craves no attention but is an extremely important counterbalance to specific global forces that continue to neutralize specific human talents and natural sensibilities.

Bleedin' Rapid
2013/Ireland (21 min)
Director: Etain McGuckian
Black, white, young, old, we all wear the same kind of clothes. But sometimes, through the wears and tears of life, they might need a bit of alteration.

The Daisy Chain
2013/Ireland (5 min)
Director: Denis Fitzpatrick
A small film about flowers, childhood and looking back. Set in the West Cork town of Schull, it's an Irish story that will resonate with anyone who has ever played with flowers.

2013/Ireland (15 min)
Directors: Feidlim Cannon and Tom Sullivan
Kev (40's) is trying to end his life on the side of an isolated mountain when he is interrupted by an aged man who has lost his way. Paralyzed with fear and stuck to his seat in shock, Kev is swept along by this character who is unapologetically oblivious to his plight. The day takes a surprising twist when Kev is faced with making a tough decision as the old man has a turn and momentary loss of memory. Will Kev help the old man off the mountain or continue with his plan?

A Day For The Fire
2013/Ireland (22 min)  
Director: Maurice O'Callaghan
A Day for the Fire is a short film where two strangers meet in a West Cork pub and are drawn together by the great personal tragedy one man reveals to the other. The story is set in post Celtic Tiger Ireland during a time of hardship and recession.

Boys From County Hell
2012/Ireland (17 min)  
Director: Chris Baugh
A group of workmen, among them a conflicted father and son, undertake a job in a forbidding, barren landscape only to be stalked by a bloodthirsty assailant that resides there. As darkness closes in it's up to them to use all of their wits, resources and power tools to try and survive the night.

Lambing Season
2012/USA/Ireland (15 min)
Director: Jeannie Donohoe
LAMBING SEASON is the offbeat tale of Bridget, an American woman who travels to the Irish countryside to track down her long-lost father while posing as a stranger. When things don't go according to her convoluted plan, Bridget and her father are surprised to learn they have more in common than they imagined. On a sheep farm full of secrets, nature has its way of delivering the truth.
