Ireland to host 18th Celtic Film & TV Fest

DUBLIN — The 18th Celtic Film &Television Festival will run April 1-4 in Tralee, County Kerry.

Fest has been running since 1980 under the auspices of the Celtic Film & Television Assn., whose membership is drawn from Brittany (northwestern France), Cornwall (southwestern England), Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The competitive festival is hosted in one of these five on a revolving basis.

Although entrants’ films do not have to be in the Celtic language of their particular country, those that do are subtitled in English or French.

The association is keen to ensure that TV and film reflect “the cultures and indigenous minority languages” of the five Celtic regions. Seminars and debates will run in tandem with the competitive events in the fest’s nine different categories.

Past prize winners have included Paul Turner’s “Hedd Wyn” (1993) and Peter Capaldi’s short “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life” (1994).

Ireland hosted the event in 1989 (Gweedore) and 1994 (Derry).
