Film Festival 2014

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 15th October 2014

On Friday, October 10th our school went to the Film Festival in Killarney. This year the Film Festival was a series of small movies instead of one long movie. The first film was called My Stuffed Granny and it was about a hungry Granny. The second film was called Mr. Plastimime and it was about mime. The third film was called Rockmount and it was about Roy Keane when he was younger and when he played in Rockmount. The fourth film was named Sebastian was it was about a boy who could see colour but everyone else could only see black and white. The fifth movie was called Subs and it was about two boys who go to soccer training and they were the last boys to be picked up so they became friends. The last but not least was called Deadly. It was a cartoon and was about a skeleton who took souls from old people and became friends with an old lady.

We all enjoyed our trip to the Film Festival
