Full Moon Film Festival 2017

Bringing you lucky people 18 screenings across 1 long weekend in September/October, and as with previous Full Moons, we’ll be showing films that are in keeping with each of our currently running “film-threads” – in short, making sure we’re screening something for everybody to enjoy! So 80’s classics sit comfortably alongside cutting edge documentaries and hard-hitting Irish features; we’ve got exclusive animations, music movies, nomad screenings and much more besides! 

For every FMFF, we spend many hours pulling our hair out, deliberating and debating together, to compile what we believe to be the brightest, most varied, & exciting film programme we can possibly muster, and this year we reckon we’ve totes nailed the brief -  can’t wait for you to join us! Fantastic films, the way they’re supposed to be seen – on the big screen. Love movies, love NCC, love Full Moon ’17!
