‘Sing Street’, written and directed by John Carney will screen at the Fastnet Film Festival in Schull, on Saturday, May 28, followed by interviews with John, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo and Mark McKenna.

Combining warmth and humour with a punk rock edge, and featuring hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis, ‘Sing Street’ will resonate with music fans everywhere.

The original music is also spectacular. Inspired by John’s life and love for music and tells the story of 14-year-old Cosmo, growing up in 80s Dublin, who must break free of a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, deal with his drop-out older brother’s antics, and survive a new public school where the kids are rough and the brothers are tougher.

Fastnet Film Festival 2016 with the tagline ‘Our Village is our Screen’ runs from Wednesday, May 25 to Sunday, May 29, 2016.

There is fun for all, with free family entertainment, from puppet shows, drama workshops and face painting, to batik, t-shirt painting, storytelling and kids cinema.

‘Distributed Cinema’ is Schull’s very own dedicated server to short films. Anyone with a smartphone, laptop or iPad can access past years submitted films, archived workshops and Q&As, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year in the village of Schull. During the festival, the server is used alongside HD media players, to screen shorts and features, in a number of smaller venues throughout the locality.
