Last month we listed nine Irish films that are taking part in the Short Film Corner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Seven more films have joined these, bringing the total Irish representation up to 16.

These seven are Craig Moore’s thriller Any Last Words, Richard Scobie’s drama Arabella, Donncha Gilmore’s Irish language musical Bonsoir Luna, Eoghan O‚ÄôBrien and Gary Sheridan’s thriller In Pitch Dark, Colin Murnane’s docu-drama Pedestrian Crossing, Luke Morgan’s drama Pocket, and Yvonne McDevitt’s experimental Time.

At Cannes, short films are represented at the Competition, at the end of which the short films Jury awards a Palme d’Or, and at the Short Film Corner, a professional area for meeting people, exchanging ideas and promoting films.

The Cannes Film Festival runs May 13th to 24th.

    Good luck with the short films everyone. I am a film and TV composer recently moved back to Ireland looking for projects. Get in touch I compose with scripts, storyboards, rough edits, final locks or ideas on the back of an envelope!
