LIGHT HOUSE SHORTS
The second monthly Shorts at Light House Cinema is happening at the later time of 21:00 next Monday, July 30th. Tickets are priced just €7.50 and proceeds are going to The Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin 7. BOOK NOW!
We've finally picked the short films that will make up the first installment. I say picked, but it was decided by lottery, which is just as well because the standard was truly exceptional. Seriously, it would have been impossible to pick just 90 minutes worth.
If your film didn't make it out of the hat this time, don't worry, Shorts at Light House Cinema will be happening on the last Monday of every month. The submission deadline for the next event is August 13th, full details on Light House Shorts and applications can be found here.
