The Wicklow Stories Film Festival is set to take place at the Whale Theatre in Greystones on Saturday 7 October.
Following great success with last year’s iteration, the festival returns, bringing industry professionals and film lovers together for a showcase of the best filmmaking the Garden of Ireland has to offer-highlighting local talent, stories, and Wicklow as a county.
Some of the films to be featured at the showcase include Valeria Patarushina’s Skedaddle, Brian O Riordan’s Locked In, Luke O'Reilly’s Wait for Me, Laura Connolly, Kate Dunne and Pearse Stokes’ To The Waters and The Wild, Zeff Lawless’ BINGO and The Wrong God by Conor Dowling.
I’m delighted to say our film “The Journey to Pride” will screen as a guest of the Wicklow Stories Film Festival on 7th October. Tickets on sale now.https://t.co/RuJv7xhHJO@GCNmag @nxfie @WicklowPride @TheGalas @labourlgbtq @QueerBooksIE @WicklowPeople pic.twitter.com/FU2NywzJ80

A series of special films were also invited for screenings, with Journey to Pride by Dave Thomas and Laura Whitmore’s Sadhbh set to feature, the latter being shown in Wicklow for the first time. Laura Whitmore will also be doing a Q&A at 8pm, following the screening of her film .
Rise at the Cove will also be featured, a film which highlights a Greystones landmark and shows the positive impact of the first social enterprise in town on the local community.
Home to the Ireland’s only four wall studio, Ardmore studios, Wicklow as a county has long had a strong cinematic tradition. It has been the filming location for many high-profile projects such as BBC Television drama Ballykissangel. Recently Wicklow was also the chosen location of filming for the irreverent hit film Cocaine Bear.
Acclaimed filmmaker John Boorman and Oscar-winner Daniel Day Lewis are also said to have called the county home.
