The Bleeding Pig Film Festival is back for its third edition from Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th September in Keelings Pub of Donabate and will feature two nights of short films and one feature film.

The festival has teamed up with FilmBath in the UK and have awarded 60% of the films on the programme the F-Rating. This rating applies to any film which is written and/or directed by a woman. Tuesday night’s screening will be solely dedicated to F-rated films.

There will be a special screening of Frank Berry’s Irish prison drama Michael Inside on Wednesday 12th September. Starring newcomer Dafhyd Fylnn , Lalor Roddy and Moe Dunford, Michael Inside won Best Irish Film and New Talent Award at the Galway Film Fleadh 2017 and Best Film at the 2018 IFTA’s and has just been selected for the European Film Awards.

Frank Berry will attend the screening and will participate in an audience Q&A afterwards.

Doors open at 7.15pm and film programme starts at 7.30pm.
