The 2014 Official Opening

This year, Clones Film Festival was be officially opened by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD. The main feature of the evening was Na Píobairí Uilleann, a fascinating documentary on the story of the 1968 gathering of pipers that saved the uilleann pipes from extinction, produced by Ballybay native Deaglán Ó Mocháin of Dearcán Media.As every year, this event is free of charge; wine and refreshments will be served and you can join filmmakers, pipers and other musicians for a traditional music session in CFF’s festival club at Adamson’s bar and lounge after the screenings.

Logo4 days of film - features, shorts, documentaries, kids' movies

We offer the usual, and yet...MORE. We will still be focusing on films that you would not be seeing in the local commoner garden Super-Mc-Omni-Trek cinema. Our Team has been out and about and will continue to research the titles that will be shown, and we trust, as always, they will choose wisely. We will document the strange, we will ponder the literate, we will translate the foreign, we will thrill with shorts, and as always, entertain the kids. It is rumoured that there will be a small elite food clique, with specialty food films, food guests, and yes you've guessed it . . . food.  I don't know where I heard that, maybe it's just time I had some lunch.
