Dingle International Film Festival announce special guest for 2018.
The Dingle International Film Festival is excited to announce RTÉ video journalist Seán Mac an tSíthigh as a special guest for their 12th instalment. The festival will run from 22-25 March 2018.
The West Kerry native will present an archive of his work from the last decade. Seán provides provincial, national and international news for TG4 and RTÉ. The video journalist works alone, combining the skills of reporter, camera operator and editor. He has also captured and edited impressive news items using only his mobile phone. Before joining RTÉ the reporter completed a masters in place names and folklore in UCC and spent a period working as an heritage officer in the Iveragh Gaeltacht. His unique style of news storytelling has earned him numerous awards, including the European Reporters’ Cup and the prestigious CIRCOM European Regional Television Awards.
Seán will present a newsreel of selected reports. We can expect fascinating local news stories that have included, digging sheep out of snow, major storm events and artists painting with cow dung; intimate portraits of fascinating characters with remarkable stories; international reports, from gun laws in America’s ‘Deep South’ to the Refugee Crisis in the Mediterranean.
Leagfar béim sa chaint ar dhúshlán agus ar bhuntáistí na hiriseoireachta físe. Tabharfaidh na blaisíní nuachta a thaispeáinfear léargas ar shaol, saothar agus saibhreas cultúrtha mhuintir na Gaeltachta, na scéalta is mó a tharraing caint sa cheantar le deich mbliana anuas, agus an ceiliúradh a deintear sna tuairiscí ar oidhreacht phobail agus áilleacht taobh tíre.
Séan and Aodh Ó Coileáin, previous presenter on RTÉ and TG4, will conduct a Q&A after presentation.
All proceeds will be donated to Camp Hill Charity in support of people with disabilities.
Dingle International Film Festival will run from 22-25 March 2018.
