An Étude in Art- Short film

Our short film An Étude in Art is all set for its world premiere at the 14th Waterford Film Festival, 20-23 November 2020. The festival's objective is to add to Waterford's arts and cultural scene, promoting local, national, and international filmmakers and writers, but in particular independent film. The festival presents short films of a wide range of genres including drama, thrillers, horrors, comedy, Sci-Fi, and films that engage with social, political and cultural issues. Waterford Filmmaker Stephen Byrne founded the festival in 2007, and since then filmmakers from Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Greece and as far as Canada and USA have attended the festival. In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, the event moves online. Check it out at https://www.waterfordfilmfestival.net/ and get a ticket for all of Programme 7 (that's the one An Étude in Art appears in) for only €5.50 or get a festival pass for all 8 Programmes for only €16. A film festival in your own living room.


"Our film goes out in the continued support of 'Cork Samaritans', with our hopes that someone who needs to, will see it at the right time, and make that call. Art is an exploration of life, just as this creator's life is an exploration of art.’ Yvonne Coughlan.

We were all delighted to support
Cork Samaritans
