The Gap Arts Festival 2020 is delighted to invite you to join us in the online premiere of two short Covid-related films.
On Friday October 9th at 8pm, the Festival will present the Facebook Live Premiere of Ceol na gCrann, The Music of the Trees; and Life Under Lockdown.
Life Under Lockdown is a series of videos made by people in and around Ballythomas, north Wexford.
A few years ago, the Festival ran a two-month Mobile Device Filmmaking Workshop. Earlier this year, into the beginning of lockdown, we decided to put these skills to use. We commissioned a short film to be made by people at home. Ten people, young and old, from 13 to 60 plus, – secondary students, a pizza-serving publican, a local priest, among them, – recorded aspects of their daily lives in the new situation on their phones and laptops.
