We were delighted to be invited to screen Still Loved at Cork International Film Festival Ireland in November 2016. Both myself and Producer Colin Pons attended. This was our first official film festival screening so it was an exciting event for us. We also were invited to screen at i Docs in Beijing and unfortunately both events were at the same time, so rather than miss either of them, we jiggled some dates around and the wonderful festival Director at Cork, James Mulligan, helpfully agreed to screen Still Loved right at the beginning of Cork Film Festival, so that we could screen on the Saturday 12th November and then leave for China on the Sunday morning.
We screened Still Loved at The Gate Cinema at 6.30pm on Saturday evening. The audience were fantastic and James Mulligan led a great Q&A afterwards. We were joined by Mairie Cregan from Feileacain, the Irish baby loss support charity.
"Excellent. Included siblings, fathers, grandparents and friends, showing the ripple effect and the continued bond of attachment to a baby who is still part of the family."
Joann O’Leary, Minnesota
"This is an excellent film that should be compulsory public viewing. Congratulations to the Still Loved team on a job well done."
Margaret Murphy, UCC, Ireland
"A very strong film on life and death issues. It makes the audience reflect on the miracle that is human life in all it’s forms and how it should be cherished and nurtured. It should be seen by as broad an audience as possible."
Ray Hill, Ireland
"A fantastic movie with very important educational aspects. As a nursing student, I see the importance of how these situations are handled. A positive experience is imperative where as a negative experience resonates with the family forever and lengthens the healing time. I think it should be shown to all student of each discipline."
Jenna Kelly, Ireland
From this screening we got invited to attend the International Stillbirth Alliance Conference next year in Cork, which we are very much looking forward to.
Regrettably we had to leave beautiful Cork and the rest of a fantastic festival very early Sunday morning. We were honoured and delighted to be included in the festival and huge thanks to James for programming us and helping to bring Still Loved to an international audience.
