Dean Kavanagh is an experimental filmmaker from Ireland.


Over the past 14 years, he has created 70 shorts and 6 feature films.

This work has been described as part of an important new direction in Irish cinema and has been screened at film festivals and cultural institutions internationally. In 2022, Kavanagh's first narrative feature film, Hole in the Head, received an Irish theatrical release and earned critical acclaim.
