Unrestricted View (Online) Film Festival – Friday 17th July

Due to COVID-19 we have taken the decision to move the Unrestricted View Film Festival online.

Here is the festival brochure:

How this works:

You buy a ticket (either a day pass or a festival pass) and the day before the screening you will be sent a link and password (so keep an eye on spam just in case!). Each day the line up of films available changes.

Friday 17th July

The 3 screenings are:

SPA Weekend

Dir: Maureen O Connell
Feature 75 mins

Jo Murphy returns to Dublin after five unsuccessful years of trying to make it as an actor in London. She back at her mum’s, doing her old job, seeing her old ‘friends’ and constantly feeling like a failure. She thinks a camping trip for her birthday will cheer her up, but no-one wants to come. She bumps into an old friend, Stoney, at a casting and convinces him to come on a ‘Spa Weekend’ (her way of saying ‘camping’). He owes his drug dealing landlord money so is eager to get away, and a spa weekend sounds lovely. They road-trip it down the countryside with Stoney’s landlord (unbeknownst to them) on their tail. SPA Weekend is an award-winning feature length slacker comedy film with a feminist message smuggled into it!
