Wicklow Young Filmmakers
2008 Winners

Robert Manson was the winner of Category 1 of this relatively new competition, for his film, The Silver Bow (Producer Paul Curren). This gentle, thought-provoking film is about a street performer who meets his son in town for an hour before he goes to work. Duration: 8 mins

Dylan Haskins won Category 2 with his documentary, Roll up your sleeves: The DIY Counterculture. The film is a colourful exploration of the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ counterculture, starting from Dylan’s alternative community and moving onto his European tour with US folk punk band. Independent music features throughout the film. Duration: 27 mins.
Both winners will be available for a brief discussion on their films, after the screenings.

Jimi Cullen Singer/songwriter

If you want to go on a journey from protest songs through love songs to those that squeeze every drop of emotion out of you, then Jimi Cullen is your man.
Jimi is a solo musician from Gorey. He has been writing and performing for over three years and has built a good reputation as one of the hardest working musicians, with over 500 gigs to his credit. His debut album, When the last leaf falls, was released in 2007 and has sold over 1,000 copies, receiving good reviews in Hotpress.
Jimi’s music can best be described as mix between Folk, Grunge, Blues and Rock, mixed with a healthy dose of originality.
