One of our side projects is supporting the work of Ivan Robertson, a writer whose site we maintain and who comes up to record his great short stories for releasing via the web. Ivan also wrote and appeared in our short film, The Angelus. An old colleague of Ivan's, Joe Pignato, who teaches in the Music Department of SUNY Oneonta, responded to one of Ivan's short stories. He composed a special piece of music and then devised a really great event we were happy to participate in.
All Over centered around a performance of Joe's own composition to an audience in SUNY Oneonta. Beamed into the auditorium were live orchestrated performances from a dozen or so musicians from across the US, Israel, Canada, New Zealand all interspersed with live readings from Ivan here at Janey Pictures in Leitrim. The photograph above shows them setting up testing the connections to us and to New Zealand. It was a hectic 90 minutes or so here trying not to miss our cues and hearing what we could over the headphones. As soon as there's a link to video we'll post it up here. A great vision and huge ambition from Joe and we were happy it all came together.
Janey Pictures wins award for the Creative Sector in Leitrim
Delighted that we won in the Creative Industries section of the County Enterprise Awards this month. Thanks to all the gang up at County Leitrim Enterprise Board who have supported our work since the early days of Janey and continue to provide the service they do. We were thrilled.

South America - screenings in Argentina and Bolivia
Just a quick update on the latest tour of South America for 32A.
After screenings in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in Asuncion, Paraguay in May, the film was shown in Bahia Blanca, Argentina at the end of July. We also screened in Rosario, Argentina: 13 August and in Salta, Argentina: between 9 and 19 August.
Upcoming screenings include:
- Córdoba, Argentina: 1-4 September
- Chaco, Argentina: during the months of October and November.
- 5 cities in Bolivia: between 10-24 November, more details as we get them.
All of which is fantastic and thanks to the Dept of Foreign Affairs and the Irish FIlm Institute in co-ordinating all of this. We get a lot of visitors from South America to our site and it's a pleasure to know how well the film is received there.
Nick Miller installation in Kilkenny
Very nice of the Ukraine film festival to put us on the front of their film journal and thanks to the good people at Reel Ireland for sending us on the picture. We’re in a flurry of festivals still around the planet this March as St. Patrick’s day approaches. 32A is participating in festivals and screenings in the Ukraine, Zagreb, Florida, The Hague, Guyana, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Cuba, and Marian’s hometown (finally...) Chicago.
We see we were on television in The Netherlands last night. Hi to all of you, very nice of you to come and visit.
If any of you missed it and will be near Den Haag this coming St. Patrick’s Day we will also be screening outdoors there, which sounds like a lot of fun.
One of the joys of the internet is we know when our film has screened in different territories from all the visitors to our site. We are very happy to have screened in France, a country which has inspired us as filmmakers. To the land of Truffaut et al, thanks for coming by, merci bien.
