Overall Rating
  • CineShots is a breath of fresh air. No over-crowded programmes, no phoney-awards, just 6 films and a room full of film fans. Brilliant communication, a fantastic venue and ran by a great bunch of people who are passionate about what they do.

    Thank you very much Ciaran!
    It was a pleasure watching your Pianist on the big screen.
    And might we say what an amazing quote you put there on your poster ;).

    This is a cracking indie film night! It's really well organized in a super location. It's got a great vibe, and this all comes from Maj and his crew of enthusiastic volunteers - they're all film makers and they greet you with a warmth and hospitality that is bar none. They really do do their best to champion independent short films. With a dry, infectious, self-deprecating sense of humour, Maj puts you completely at ease during the Q&A session - it was a joy to be part of. A top top night. Great films, great host, great networking. What's not to like?! I'll be submitting again for sure, and I recommend other film makers to do so too.

    What a great event! An honour to have my film premiere at such a valuable and wholesome night, with a myriad of great and different films. It was lovely to be Q&Aed by such a competent host and to meet other filmmakers - I'll be definitely submitting future work here.
