Clifden Arts Festival is delighted to announce that the short film ‘Far Calls’ has been accepted for showing at the Dublin International Film Festival. Tristan Heanue and Olwen Fouéré created far Calls. It was commissioned by Clifden Arts Festival and premiered at the 2022 Clifden Arts Festival. The 2023 DIFF runs from 23 February to 4 March.
Far Calls was filmed on location here in Connemara in Aughrus Peninsula and Renvyle. We are so very proud to showcase the work of international and local friends of the Festival.
Segments of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake inspired far Calls, and it exquisitely captures Connemara Landscape fusing with Joycian text.
We congratulate everyone and all the work on this project.
