Photos/film footage sought for TV programme

Independent TV production company Mind the Gap Films are in production on a series about community festivals around Ireland, particularly those that crown a festival queen.

Apart from filming at six festivals this summer, they want to illustrate the history of this tradition by incorporating archive footage and photographs into the programme. Mind the Gap are issuing a national call for home-movies and photos taken at community festivals in years past – baking competitions, parades, funfairs, festival queen competitions; all the events that make these traditional festivals what they are.

The programme is funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, which only backs programming of historical, social or cultural merit. The aim of the programme is to celebrate the history of these festivals while showing that they are still alive and well today.

Mind the Gap  would love to get images and footage stretching back as far as possible, and chances are there will be some gems hiding under beds or in attics! They can also reassure anyone who is interested that anything we receive will be returned to its owner.

Kind regards,
