FUNDED by City of Culture 2014 through Film Limerick and Behind the Scenes, three short fictional films were commissioned after a call out to Limerick based film makers. Now RTE2 is set to showcase the final works in a late viewing slot, November midnights.

Made individually and locally with each director in collaboration with Gerry Stembridge (Scrap Saturday, About Adam), TRILOGY units worked as a training exercise mentored by professional technicians and editors.

RTE2 opens with ‘Day Off’ by Stephen Hall on Monday 7 at 12.05am. ‘The Apparel’ by Peter Delaney follows on November 14 and ‘Date: Time’ by Paul Corey on November 21.

“This is a fantastic honour to have the films screened on RTE and RTE international Player,” observed executive producer Ronan Cassidy to Limerick Post. “It is also a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent we have in Limerick. This project has been a massive effort by the local community and deserve the biggest audience it can get”.
