Bertie Brosnan’s new short art-documentary Last Service, funded by the Cork City Arts, will screen at this year’s Fastnet Film Festival.

Last Service is a short documentary that follows a gravedigger on a typical day at work as he imparts a wonderfully beautiful and simple philosophy on life and death.

Bertie Brosnan (Con, Sineater, Jacob Wrestling With The Angel) produced, directed and edited Last Service. Brian O’ Connor (Con, Message) shot it. It was coloured by Phillip Morozov (Sineater, Jacob Wrestling With The Angel, Con). Sound Design by Brian Lane (Date Night, Disappear, Receptive. Totally Receptive) Poster design by Ray Foley.

Bertie Brosnan, who received a film bursary last year for the production of two artistic short films, will see his film screened at this years Fastnet Film Festival as a part of the DC Program. It will screen four times, once each day in different venues around the town of Schull where the festival is taking place.

Screenings are as follows: May 24th 1 pm in The Odeon, May 25th 3 pm in The Metropole, May 26th 1 pm in The Odeon, May 27th 2 pm in The Royal.


Currently, Bertie Brosnan has another short film that is funded by Cork City Arts Council that will be released online with the backing of some local organisations who are tackling homelessness. He is also waiting to hear back from festivals about his feature film titled Con and is in the process of attaining distribution for the same film.
