About Studio North West
Studio North West is a forum of filmmakers and practitioners based in the Irish North West. The membership base covers Leitrim, Sligo, North Roscommon and South Donegal. A region not recognised for this medium, it has seen a growth in documentary and feature production in recent years. The SNW Forum meets monthly in different venues and is committed to the pooling of knowledge, to developing an equipment base and increasing collaboration on projects.
One such collaboration is a Digital Mapping project for Sligo Arts Service being co-ordinated by constituent company Bandit Films. This project has involved the archiving of work produced in the region to date and the production of short collaborative documentary pieces on a range of festivals and events in County Sligo. Bandit Films have in turn collaborated with Sleeping Warrior Productions to develop and operate Studio North West tv.
