Starting on St Patrick's Day, 3e is to support the best of emerging Irish film making talent by showcasing Irish short films.

With the exciting growth of international film and TV series makers like Game Of Thrones and Star Wars flocking to Ireland to capture their stories, there is an explosion of independent film making in Ireland and 3e will be giving these film makers a platform to share their stories.

The first short Irish film to air will be ‘Noreen’ at 9pm on St Patricks Day, Friday 17th March. Written and directed in 2010 by Domhnall Gleeson the film stars his father Brendan Gleeson and brother Brian Gleeson. The story surrounds two guards who are called to investigate a house where there has been reports of a gunshot. Brian plays an emotional Frank, inexperienced and heartbroken and Brendan plays Con, middle-aged and weary.
Bill Malone, Director of Programming said: “Everywhere you look in Ireland there’s a wealth of brilliant movie talent exploding onto our screens, we’re very pleased to announce that 3e now supports Irish film. This will give emerging Irish film makers a platform to share their stories”.
TV3 already have a proud tradition supporting and co-funding Irish film and are the broadcaster for a host of new Irish films later this year including: Mammal, My Name Is Emily, Cardboard Gangsters, The Ranger, The Bailout and A date for Mad Mary.

Cardboard Gangsters just won a host of awards at the Manchester Film Festival, namely Film of the Festival, Best Film and Best actor for leading man John Connors.
Noreen’ will air on Friday 17th March at 9pm on 3e.
