An Lar TV, a television and web network in Ireland dedicated to programming that explores Irish history, arts and culture, has picked up the twelve short films that comprise my anthology “Firinne: Searching for Ireland”. The anthology of documentary, narrative, and experimental films, which range in length from one minute to twenty minutes, and which were shot entirely in Ireland, explore the many facets of contemporary Irish cultural identity. The films have played festivals in Ireland before, but An Lar’s endorsement of the work means a lot to me as they are among the sharpest curators of artistic works that are meaningful to the discussion of what it means to be Irish in 2014.  
If you’re interested in seeing any of them, the films can also be viewed at my Vimeo channel: http://www.vimeo.com/dustinmorrow.

From their website (http://mvvfest.org/):  

Filmmaker and author Dustin Morrow conducts a free, hour-long workshop, “The Romance of Film Editing” , 3:00 p.m., Saturday, February 22 at CCTV Studio 1, 575 Trade St SE. Prof. Morrow explores the history and the psychology of editing, and seeks to answer such questions as “How does the brain process an edit?”, “What makes a cut work?”, and “How does an effective edit engage a viewer’s imagination?”  He will also discuss the relationship between time and editing, and the inherent romance and beauty of this mysterious art form.

My film Everything Went Down is an official selection of the 10th annual Black Earth Film Festival.  The film will screen at the festival in Galesburg, IL, on Friday, Feb. 28, in the 6:30pm program. We’re very honored to be the only feature programmed by the festival this year.  For the full schedule:  http://www.blackearthfilmfestival.org/p/schedule.html
