Sound! Film Festival, 27 – 30 April 2023
Sound! is a new weekend-long event, presented by Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny in partnership with An Grianán Theatre, that celebrates the art of music and sound in film, via a series of film screenings, live performances, workshops and interactive events.
Sound is an integral part of cinema, yet all too often it goes unrecognised and undervalued. Giving the sounds of cinema their time in the limelight, this unique event is dedicated to celebrating the craft and artistry behind the cinematic soundscapes which immerse, inspire and captivate viewers.
