On Wednesday April 24th the Fourth Year Media and Communications students will be screening the documentaries and adverts that they have spent the last twelve weeks working on as part of their BA Degree. This will be the 23rd annual screening and we are delighted to be able to present the work at Belltable (69 O’Connell Street) as it is not only a celebration of the students hard work but also the culmination of their four year’s studying here in Mary Immaculate College.

This year there are five documentaries in total:

Soviet City A centennial celebration of the short lived Limerick Soviet of 1919.

Back In My Day talks to the older generation about the limited job (and life) opportunities available to them in the Ireland of the 60s and 70s.

Keeping Faith A truly moving piece about a young woman named Emma Lacey and the community that came together to support her after she was diagnosed with spinal stenosis.

Why Here ? What Next ? This documentary looks at a group of contemporary Arts students in MIC  and what their future holds.

Tributaries An abstract exploration of the river Shannon, the natural heart of Limerick City. The documentaries will also be interspersed with advertisements made by the students for their own invented products, the challenge being that each product must be marketed separately to both a female audience and a male audience.

Course lecturer Nicky Fennell noted; “The amount of work that goes into assembling these documentaries, considering the extremely tight timescale the students are up against, is monumental, but as usual this year the students have thrown themselves into the challenge, many of them giving up their Easter break to perfect their films. The results are extremely impressive, not only on a technical level but also in terms of the narrative quality of each and every one of them. We hope you can show them your support by turning out for an entertaining night’s viewing combined with a bittersweet farewell to the class of ’19.”

The screening starts at 7.30pm sharp with a reception to follow and all are welcome.
