The Looking Glass Anthology Shortlisted for FOCAL Award

Date: 18/05/2023 16:24

We're delighted to announce that The Looking Glass Anthology has been nominated in the Best Use of Footage in a Short Film Production category at the 2023 FOCAL International Awards!

The Looking Glass Anthology is a collection of beautiful, thought-provoking, audio-visual works by a range of musicians and poets that capture what the archives mean to them on a personal level. 

The four works in the collection include pieces from Matt McGinn, Rachael Boyd, Stephen Sexton, and Eoin O'Callaghan. Each film is different in its own way, yet also complimentary of the whole.

The project challenges us to put ourselves in the shoes of those from the past and imagine what the future may be like, as well as to look within ourselves for answers, in this way being both retrospective and introspective. The pieces are uplifting, bittersweet, challenging, sentimental, heart breaking and inspiring.
