Filmhouse’s monthly screening strand showing classic and contemporary films dealing with some of the more complex aspects of childhood. Jessie Moroney invites viewers to join her for a selection of introduced screenings that explore the the emotional turbulences experienced during our early years, and hopes to create a space that encourages audiences to share their own responses on how these films affect them now as adults, as catharsis or otherwise, during post- screening chats.
Jessie is a member of the programming team at Filmhouse and is currently attending the Practical Programming course run by the Independent Cinema Office. The course is designed to help participants to develop a fresh programme for their home venues. This programming idea was successfully pitched to the Filmhouse team, leading to a monthly screening of films focusing on childhood issues.
