"I learnt the existence of EFS in 2009 having stumbled upon a film screening at a small venue in Dublin City, Ireland. This screening included one EFS film (Kavanagh’s POOR EDWARD) and this utterly refreshing experience paved a path for me to experimental cinema where I’ve been ever since and with no plans to leave. Thanks to venues such as The Picture Show and the opportunity to show such a program I hope others may also embark on such a journey."
