Intro Text 

As part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2020 we present to you a set of short films written by, starring, filmed and produced by young people from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County as part of the DLR Young Filmmakers Project which ran in the Grainstore, dlr Youth Arts Facility and dlr LexIcon from 2018 to 2019.

This is the first time this collection of formal and experimental works have been screened together. As individual short films, they have been screened around Ireland and Europe, with 'Strings Attached' winning the Best Concept at Noise Flicks Film Festival. They showcase the development of the young filmmakers through their time working with Visual Artist John Conway, and also give an insight and unique voice to their talents and experiences as young people.

The group's final work 'On the Rocks' is accompanied by an insightful Director's Commentary which gives an oversight to the film making process the young people went through to produce their works.
