Nenagh Silent Film Festival notes 20th Feb

The committee of the Nenagh Silent Film Festival (NSFF) would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who supported us during our recent Street Collection Day. It was a great success and we were very happy with the funds raised. Also, a big thank you to the local businesses that generously allowed the NSFF to collect outside their premises. Thank you to all the collectors and local councillors who offered their time to support us on the day and are thoroughly behind this endeavour, and furthermore, the people who worked behind the scenes in the organisation of stickers, information leaflets, tables and buckets. And last but not least a huge thank you to our very own Charlie Chaplin who played a great part on the day.

 

The NSFF initiative continues to grow from strength to strength and we’d like to announce that between now the actual event there will be a number of unique events and fundraisers which will all lead to creating a substantial Silent Film Festival the Nenagh community can be proud of hosting.

 

The next monthly public meeting is to be held on Friday 9th March at the earlier time of 6.15pm in the Hibernian Inn. The focus for this meeting will be predominantly on preparation for our participation in the 2012 Nenagh Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, and also the adoption of the Nenagh Silent Film Festival Committee Constitution. The NSFF is a community-based volunteer initiative in support of local tourism which is based around the art of silent film and all are welcome to become involved.

 

Finally, the very best of luck to the silent film The Artist at the Oscars this coming Sunday, and also to the two Irish short films Pentecost and The Shore,Albert Nobbs, which was filmed in Ireland and to Northern Ireland actor Kenneth Branagh (Best Supporting Actor) for his role in My Week With Marilyn.
