16 May 11 . seventh day . the finale

The final day of the workshop started at 1.45 at the Filmbase. Everybody finalized their films, and gathered them on Sinead's laptop we would use for screening. We tested the projector and the sound system, and left. We met again at around 6 to set up a table for the food and the drinks for the guests, who started to show up shortly after 6.30. We started the show at 7.15. Each film was reviewed right after the screening. The participants got the chance to talk about their piece, and to get feedback from Harvey O'Brien, Kathleen James, Paddy Breathnach, and Samantha Martin who were our reviewers. We are grateful to our reviewers and everyone who came. Here is the program of the screening:

Through Walls by Sinead Curran
Blackpitts by Eoin Reddington
You are Here by Stephen Mulhall and Paul Quinn
Legal Alien by Paraic McQuaid

We continued partying after the guests left. I would like to thank Sinead, Eoin, Stephen, Paul, and Paraic for a great week full of ideas, inspiration, film and fun. I am sure some of the people in this group will continue working and/or having fun together.

I would also like to thank The Architecture Foundation, Exchange Dublin and the Filmbase for supporting the workshop.
