Meet Me There

Phil McNulty writes:

The Griffith College Film Exhibition is on until Monday at our Dublin campus on South Circular Road. We have 13 films made by our students on show and it’s completely open to the public and it’s free!

The film that is probably getting the most attention is Meet me There. With the week that’s in it – this film was heavily influenced by the referendum and it’s just a lovely, well-crafted piece!

The New Music.

Emma Fagen writes:

“The New Music” follows the struggles of Adrian, a young classical musician with extraordinary talent, who discovers he has Young Onset Parkinson’s, a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease affecting sufferers under 50.

Despite this debilitating condition, Adrian (played by Dublin actor Cilléin Mc Evoy) joins a punk band as a keyboard player and rediscovers his life through music and love.

Filming was completed early this year and the production team have launched a crowd-funding campaign to reach out to the public to donate what they can in order to raise money for the post production expenses of the film- editing, sound, music, marketing and festival entries.

20% of all funds raised will go directly to Young Parkinson’s Ireland in addition to all future income from the film.

Young Parkinson’s Ireland is heavily involved with the film itself, having consulted on the initial script and approved a recent rough cut.
