Kilkenny Animated Opening Night Party (co-hosted by The Irish Film and Television Academy, IFTA)

Medieval Mile Museum

The Kilkenny Animated opener is an exciting one! We’ve got a very special screened retrospective of the animation and game design work of the celebrated Kilkenny artist David OReilly in conversation with Cartoon Saloon founder and Oscar-nominated director, Tomm Moore. David will show a selection of work from his short films including Please Say Something & The External World, and clips from his work in the movie Her among other works.

All in the spectacular surroundings of the Medieval Mile Museum off Kilkenny’s High Street.

The show will be followed by drinks and canapés in Harper’s at the Hibernian Hotel, to which ticket holders are invited.

*Due to technical difficulties, the show will not feature the screening of The Eye of the Dream.
