Cormac O’Kane from the School of Design in LYIT
believes that having the Donegal Film Office on
board to shine the spotlight on the collection of
their recent graduates work is a great tribute to
work of the students and is important in raising the
profile of the creative talent emerging from the

Century Cinemas, Letterkenny at 6pm on Thursday 29
Short Shorts is a
collection of animation, film and motion graphics
work and the showcase will feature a diverse range
of work, from drawn animations of a struggling
artist’s battle with an errant fly to a computer
animated love story, from advertisements for fruits
drinks to protests for the arts and trailers for
films from mythological tales to night-time coffee
shops, this screening showcases the wealth of talent
in the North West.
According to Aideen Doherty Manager of the Donegal
Film Office having this type of talent emerging from
LYIT especially in the area of animation, film and
motion graphics is a massive bonus for the county.
“LYIT’s School of Design is at the top of their game
when it comes to nurturing film talent and to have
this type of facility in Donegal and indeed in the
region is a massive bonus when promoting Donegal to
filmmakers. Local talent is often a key criteria
when deciding on a location for film and the Donegal
Film Office is delighted to be working with both
LYIT and Century Cinemas in hosting this showcase
event,” said Aideen.
