Introduction by Solas Nua’s Kate Meenan-Waugh

The short film genre has been a particular favorite of Solas Nua’s audience each year at the Capital Irish Film Festival (CIFF).  Often, these clever and sometimes poignant stories get overshadowed by the feature films on our program. Join us as we give them a night to themselves.
