Closing Night and ‘The Francies’ Awards

Sunday 27th October | 8 pm | The Courthouse

Closing night at CFF has come to mean only one thing – ‘The Francies’. Named in honour of Francie Brady in Pat McCabe’s ‘The Butcher Boy’, the awards have been designed by Jason Crowley. Jason responded to the motif of the pig, which is central to ‘The Butcher Boy’, and fashioned these memorable awards in solid bronze.
