Be aware that the hugely im­pres­sive Fast­net Short Film Fes­ti­val be­gins in pic­turesque Schull on Wed­nes­day. The fes­ti­val will host a busy ar­ray of work­shops, screen­ings and talks over five days. As proof of the event’s in­creas­ing clout, Steve Coogan and Stephen Frears, cre­ators of the won­der­ful Philom­ena, will at­tend a pub­lic dis­cus­sion with Greg Dyke.

Cur­rently chair­man of both the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion and the Bri­tish Film In­sti­tute, Greg has also been Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral of the BBC.

A ses­sion on mu­sic in film will fea­ture con­tri­bu­tions from mu­si­cian Mau­rice Seezer, play­wright Jack Gold and liv­ing leg­end Jim Sheri- dan. Other guests in­clude David Put­tnam, Pat Collins and Carmel Win­ters.

And we haven’t even got around to the screen­ings. It’s a fab­u­lous event that de­serves pound­ing sup­port. fast­net­short­film­fes­ti­val.com.
