I saw some films from the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival 2022! 15 in fact! Here they are:
2021, what a concept!
Seven former Trump supporters are interviewed about their experiences of disillusionment of the former US President and the backlash they faced for their change of heart. Joe Walsh is a Tea Party Republican, former US Congressman and talk radio host. Batya Goldberg is the former head of Brooklyn Teen Republicans Club. Chris Gibbs is a farmer and rural advocate. David Weissman is an army veteran and former right wing troll. Nathan Munson, and Ron and Cindi Hawthorne are Evangelical Christians.
Same as before! Check out the Shorts post here.
No point in dawdling, let’s get into it:
The Micropub is a one-room pub in vicinities less spacious than your traditional local. They have become more prominent in the UK due to an advantageous licensing law. Starting off over 15 years ago with The Butchers Arm, started and operated by Martyn Hillier, they have exploded in popularity in Kent and have started to gain traction in London.
I attended the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival 2021 online! Here’s what I saw:
Brittney (Emily Shuel) has been left traumatised after her mother (Angela DiMarco) is murdered by local Seattle gangster known as Mr. Big (Raz Mallard). She works with the police to get him arrested for murder, however the trial may be foiled by Mr. Big’s amoral attorney Geno (Sandra Scragg), who plans to frame Brittney and her friends. What can Brittney do to keep her friends safe and make sure Mr. Big stays locked up?
2020, it ended! Here’s my watchlist
Shaun Rose is an independent filmmaker located in New York. His film Upstate Story released on his YouTube channel in 2018 and has more recently seen awards success in festival runs. This documentary actually tracks back his process to 2012, before ever dreaming up Upstate Story (previously titled “I”) and talking about an ambitious (and since abandoned) project Dog Days.
