The Portobello Film Festival was created in 1996 as a reaction to the moribund state of the British film industry, to provide a forum for new film-makers and give exposure to movies on different formats. Many of their previously out-on-a-limb directors have since been recognised by the big fish in the industry. The festival has been dubbed ‘the wild side of Brit Film’ (Metro), ‘this pioneering film festival’ (Evening Standard), ‘the biggest celebration of independent film in Europe’ (The Independent) and ‘London’s biggest filmic free-for-all’ (Time Out).
We're delighted to announce our second US screening in as many months. Henry & Sunny will screen at Blissfest on September 19 in Colorado, USA.
Blissfest is all about community and the arts, working together in a positive environment to raise money for charitable organizations. It is a non-competitive, very exciting series of performances and films. The festival celebrates and supports Peace, Bliss, the arts, and charitable causes.
Meanwhile the Underground Cinema Short Film Festival takes place over two days in The Screen Cinema, D'Olier Street.
The first Underground Cinema Short Irish Film Festival will take place in the Screen Cinema on September 16th & 17th at 7.30pm nightly. Admission €10.
