You may not be able to come to Schull for the Fastnet Fim Festival this year...(I believe it will be virtual like so many things right now), but you can build your very own paper model of the Fastnet Film Centre.
The Fastnet Film Centre is now in the old AIB bank building in Schull. It was built around 1935 using the well crafted, cornish stones,
which came from the dismantled Church of Ireland church on Cape Clear.
The solid stonework created the sense of permanence and security which the banks hoped to inspire...
In 2012, AIB closed its branch in Schull, leaving the building ready for a new purpose... In 2016, Judith and William Bollinger purchased the building to provide a home for the Fastnet Film Festival, which takes place every year in Schull. Short films from all over the world are screened, and industry professionals are invited to share their knowledge.
I have tried to illustrate a little of this history on the model: I imagined what it must have been like, when the people of Schull built this building...
Finally, use glue to assemble your model. You can mount the base on a piece of wood or mounting board.
For an extra special effect, try cutting out some of the windowpanes before assembling the model - then cut a hole into the base to allow you to put a small lamp or LED lights.
