Upcoming in Ireland

Rich Pickings have curated three events for the 58th Cork Film Festival in November. Covering themes as diverse as mental health and the law, technology and the body and political activism, these events combine short film, feature film and discussion to explore essential areas of science and society.

You can read an overview here and we’ll be updating it with more information over the next two weeks. The feature films we are screening include John Kastner’s powerful documentary Not Criminally Responsible, which tells the story of a psychotic man who commits a terrible crime, his rehabilitation and ultimately his return to the community. Meanwhile 99%, a collaboratively made film from the Occupy Wall Street collective, gives an inside view of the processes and issues behind one of the most exciting and powerful political movements that America has seen this century.

We’ll also be screening some brilliant short animations, dramas and documentaries looking at subjects from PTSD to cyborgs and from 3D printed prosthetics to global food distribution. The Festival looks as if it is going to be a belter so check out the programme and get there if you can!

 

 

 

 

Weird Nature

Rich Pickings is looking for short films to screen at the upcoming Scalarama Film Jam. We’re looking for films that look at nature, but look at it a bit funny. Films that look at nature through biased human eyes, exploring the dark, the bizarre, the unfriendly, the obscene and the unknown. All genres considered, films must be under 12 minutes.

Here’s one for inspiration:
