The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - irish­times.com/thet­icket/

Look west. Sean Walsh and his pals at the Bal­lina Arts Cen­tre will host Oska Bright, a unique film fes­ti­val run by and for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, at the fa­cil­ity next Tues­day.

Now in its sixth year, the trav­el­ling fes­ti­val (vis­it­ing Mayo for the first time) will present a spiff­ing ar­ray of short films, in­clud­ing an­i­ma­tions, doc­u­men­taries, a soap-opera and (would you be­lieve?) a west­ern. Other high­lights in­clude a screen­ing of Tom and Mary by Scan­nán Tech­nol­ogy, a group of learn­ing-dis­abled film-mak­ers based in Bal­lina. 096-73593, www. bal­li­naarts­cen­tre.com
