KERRY County Council has announced that award winning artist/filmmaker Lisa Fingleton is returning as the County Filmmaker in Residence. This residency is co-funded by the Arts Council.

Lisa Fingleton has over 20 years experience in participatory projects and recently completed an MA in documentary film at Goldsmiths College London.

In May this year, the Irish Film Institute hosted a special retrospective screening of her work entitled “The Power of The Personal Story”. Much of her work deals with socio political and environmental concerns. See for more information.

Lisa is interested in cultivating the deep-rooted connections between art and farming and is currently working towards a major exhibition of new work at Siamsa Tire due to open October 30.

Over the coming months she is keen to collaborate with schools and communities who are engaged in gardening and self sufficiency projects.

According to Lisa; “I am delighted to be the filmmaker in residence with the county and am really excited to support people to engage with digital filmmaking”.

Kate Kennelly, Kerry County Council Arts Officer, said: “We are delighted to have Lisa Fingleton on this residency. Lisa is a very experienced filmmaker and I would urge everyone with an interest in film-making to get in touch with her during the residency.”

Lisa is also available to provide workshops on all areas of the digital filmmaking process as well as individual and group mentoring to filmmakers and artists interested in moving image.

Please contact the Arts Office at Kerry County Council if you would like to work with Lisa by sending an email to before Friday,  September 4. (Please include, contact name, email/phone number and brief outline of your area of interest/proposal)
