On this Episode of Fni Wrapchat we focus again on some important up and coming talent screening at this years Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival.

Remie Michelle Clarke was joined by Cathy Dunne this week to talk about her moving and nostalgic new documentary and the good work she has been doing during the pandemic on Through the pane.

Cathy is a sensitive storyteller with a keen eye for visuals. She believes in paving positive pathways through film and ad campaigns and that moving images can influence for the good. While her work expands online, TV, and commercial, she has a huge 'grá' for documentary making.

Her 17-part series ‘Through the Pane’ documented the pandemic in Ireland. The final episode, which featured couple Seán and Caitlín Máirtín, gained over 1 million views in three weeks. The couple (aged 101 and 97 years respectively) met in 1945 and, through their humorous approach to life, inspired and entertained people around the country.

Her short documentary 'Imprints' is currently travelling the festival circuit and was selected for this year's Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival 2021."

Wonderful things are clearly in store for Cathy in the near future. In the meantime... check our ot previous  Episode with Peter O’Brien.
