May 28 – 30th A series of short films will be shown in the Courthouse


  • Animated short film, ‘In Those days’ by KAVA member

Patricia Timmons

  • Film ‘Them’ by award winning filmmaker Robin Lochmann THEM” is an independent short film produced in Berlin, Germany.In a forgotten village, where everyone is cut from the same cloth, a new, self-proclaimed leader arrives changing the local way of life. Dividing lines are carved out as the once unified society is torn and segregated. “THEM” is a cautionary tale of misguided ideologies, destructive leadership and of being an outsider. But most importantly, it is a film about celebrating what we have in common rather than what separates us.
  • Artist’s collaboration with ConTempo, part of

Creative Responses, the community outreach branch of Galway Music Residency

  • 5 Years of KAVA: a slide show looking back on KAVA’s past events and how KAVA has been a part of the enrichment of the cultural community of Kinvara
  • KAVA Presents…a series of short artist introduction videos put together as a remote collaboration by Craig McLeod and the individual KAVA artists. This was a big project to undertake remotely and shows how important that connection is and how difficult things can be when contact is limited.
  • Short videos including ‘Zack and Silk’, “Cosmic Joe” & “364 Days at Sea” by Louise Wallace, a visual artist and filmmaker in the West of Ireland.
