This event will be curated by Eat My Shorts, Dublin’s foremost Short Film Festival, which is dedicated to creating a platform for new and established film-makers and bringing amazing new short films to a wider audience. As part of our ‘I Love My City’ programme, they have launched an open submission inviting creatives and film makers to tell their city’s story and fill in the blank in ‘I__my city’, through animation, documentary, drama or experimental film in 15 minutes or less. An industry judging panel will select the best 10 to show at this special St. Patrick’s Festival screening.

The Book of Kells  will be open for viewing before and during event. 

Trinity’s commitment to the Irish language is also in evidence this week which coincides with Seachtain  na Gaeilge. A special Irish language coffee morning was held by Trinity’s Irish Language Office   featuring music, song and chat ‘as Gaeilge’ over coffee  in the Buttery restaurant- the venue for the weekly get-together of the Irish language community both inside and outside College.  The event featured students from Trinity’s highly successful Irish language residency schemes.
