Submissions for 2020 Now Open
Submission call for the Still Voices Short Film Festival 2020 now open!
Two Irish drug dealers, Jacko and his much-maligned sidekick Niallser, drag a captured cockney rival into an abandoned shed in the depths of rural Ireland. A stash of cocaine has gone missing, supplies are running low, and Jacko has his mind set on who is responsible. Things don't look good for Andy, the prisoner from London. Especially since the vengeful Jacko has a mighty bone to pick with the English. One that goes all the way back to the Famine. The interrogation spirals into a fiercely nationalistic debate about Anglo-Irish history, increasing the threat that something truly terrible is going to happen.

In 2016, he graduated with a masters in Directing Fiction from the National Film & Television School. His short films all focus on examining humans in surreal or fantastical settings, and span genres from science fiction to dystopian western and supernatural drama.
