Carlow on Camera presents an exciting, programme of films about Carlow which are preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive. Dating from the 1930s to the present day the programme creates a vibrant social history of the county and a colourful kaleidoscope of years gone by.

It includes Activities of Carlow Town, made by PP Fr Jackie Moran (1935 – ’58); Radharc’s documentary about Pattern Day in St Mullins (1966); Gael Linn’s Amharc Éireann newsreels of the county (1960s); Journeys down the Barrow (1960s) and the elegiac What Remains (2013) co-directed by Carlow filmmaker Tadhg O’ Sullivan and Pat Collins. The programme highlight will be the Irish modern-day première of the recently re-discovered silent boarding-school drama Some Say Chance, directed by Carlovian Michael Farrell in 1935 and accompanied by internationally renowned cellist Kate Ellis.
