Irish Talent: New Shorts One: Family Friendly Fiction

We kick of our New Irish shorts with a family friendly selection of films curated for a young teen+ audience. This programme contains an exciting, heartwarming and funny mix of live-action films that cover some important topics in a relatable way, with larger-than-life characters who are finding their feet in a bold new world.

This upbeat programme contains some bad language and includes stories that discuss bullying, grief and loss.

This selection doesn't contain any gore, horror or mature subjects but we recommend reading each film synopsis carefully before deciding if this selection is suitable for your family.

Please email with any specific questions.

The Dog Who Lost His Bark is the short film adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s bestselling book. It tells the story of ten year Roisin, a musical kid who rescues a dog called Oz. After they both struggle to connect with each other, Roisin discovers that Oz may have been a trick to distract her from the turbulence of a devastating change in her family’s situation.

Both feeling hurt and abandoned, Roisin and Oz find themselves on common ground. In that vulnerability, they stumble upon the thing that will bond them forever - a unique way to communicate.

Just like the book, a much-loved fan favourite, The Dog Who Lost His Bark is alive with Eoin Colfer’s signature blend of heartwarming characters, engaging story and charming humour.
