Halloween Town 21 Sept 2014
Every October 31st Derry/Londonderry boasts the biggest party in the world for a night of fancy dress and fireworks, but why does the city take Halloween so serious? Is it social? Cultural? Political? Or just great craic?
From costume parties in pubs, to the biggest street celebration in Europe, Halloween Town goes into the haunting days of the Troubles and learns how the biggest night of light and laughter grew from the darkest decades in the city’s history.
The film has been many years in the making and will be our first feature documentary. It is the biggest project to date, made possible by the support of Guildhall Press / Hive Digital Studio.
