There’s so much talent in Cork.
The Rebel County is truly a sacred well of creativity. But as cultural spaces diminish and the cost of living crisis tightens its grip on the arts sector, finding a home to showcase work can be a serious challenge, meaning artists lose opportunities to develop their craft… and the public misses out.
Now a new initiative, The Peoples’ Picturehouse Cork, manifested into existence by a group of local filmmakers, offers a new opportunity: a monthly showcase where directors can flex their creative muscles and screen their work at The Pav on Carey’s Lane.
“Every month we’ll screen locally made short films, sketches, music videos, and experimental film. We’re aiming to foster a community of local filmmakers where we can see each other’s work, network with each other, and also see our own work on the big screen,” said the group on Instagram.
The next showcase is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, September 27th at The Pav with films by D’Beours, David and Graham McSweeney, Immanuel Sola, Éadaoin O’Shea Costley, and more.
