The Achill Island Film Festival takes place 11-13 May, 2023
Candy (Sarah Grant)
Candy is a body positive comedy that joyfully reclaims female sexuality and
self-confidence. Mandy is a plus size burlesque enthusiast who is nervously
practicing for her first public performance with the help of her best friend and
dance partner, Jenna. It’s not until Jenna is in trouble that Mandy realizes she
doesn’t need the glittering stage and best friend at her side to take up space
and perform in all her fat and sexy glory.
Night of The Daniels (Shaun Doogan, Ciaran McCann)
When a mysterious curse threatens his local town it’s up to Daniel O’Donnell to spring in to action, defeat the evil with the power of music and save the day with the help of the locals!
Lamb (Sinéad O’Loughlin)
An ordinary day takes a sinister turn for a woman and her child when a stranger walks into their isolated rural home.
