Come and enjoy 3 short films, all with a local connection.


A wonderfully celebratory film created by Salt & Pepper, a participative arts collective of older LGBTQ+ people working with artist and filmmaker Toma McCullim through Uillinn West Cork Art Centre. The film picked up the Jury Special mention for Best Irish Film at its first trip out at Catalyst Film Festival in Limerick. It has just played to an international audience at Europride in Thessaloniki Greece. 

‘ A film that embraces and articulates beautifully the simple pleasures of life, exploring the fears and joys of aging, and providing a reassuring and realistic portrait of this universal yet under-represented part of humanity.’ _ Roisin Geraghty and Lisa Mulcahy 

 Jury Special Mention for Best Irish Film, Catalyst Film Festival.

"This is the films local premier and we are delighted share it with you all. We are Salt & Pepper because our hair is going salty grey but we are still the spice of life!"
