Adam McPartlan was at the Capital Irish Film Festival 2016 and talked to some of the filmmakers.


Director Alex Fegan and producer Garry Walsh of Older Than Ireland – a landmark documentary that tells the story of a hundred years of a life as seen through the eyes of thirty Irish centenarians.

Rachel Lysaght, producer of Traders – two strangers put all of their money into one bag and fight to the death to claim it all.

Donncha Gilmore, director/writer of Bonsoir Luna (pictured) – an Irish-language musical, which tells the story of Duke, a street artist, and Luna, a blind barista, who fall in love.

Paddy Hayes, director of Deoch an Dorais (Name Your Poison) – the legend Mike Malloy, the man who wouldn’t die.

Eileen Davis and David Dryden, co-directors of Together in Pieces – the infamous murals of Northern Ireland that have plagued both communities are being painted over into something more positive.

The Capital Irish Film Festival 2016 took place 3 – 16 March.
