The Cinemobile arriving at the Guth Gafa International Festival at Headfort House in Kells, Co Meath last year..


Restless movie theatre Cinemobile Ireland announced yesterday that it is go off the road due to lack of funding..

The truck was to travel to Headfort House in Kells, Co Meath for the tenth anniversary of  the Guth Gafa International documentary Film Festival next month.

Cinemobile Ireland was one of largest recipients of Millenium Project Funding  with a
£500,000 grant.

Anita Guidera of Guth Gafa, writes:

The mobile cinema was provisionally reserved as far back as last November and the booking confirmed in March of this year.

Guth Gafa received no advance notice before last weekend that the Cinemobile was in financial difficulty or about to cease trading.

We have been left in a really difficult situation. Guth Gafa gets underway on August 3 and will screen over 60 documentary films from all over the world and host visiting filmmakers from as far away as Australia and Canada.

If we can’t come to some arrangement, we will have just three weeks to build a 100-seater flagship venue that will do justice to the work of these filmmakers.”
