RTÉ Culture are delighted to launch our new short film channel, created in association with RTÉ Player. Over the coming weeks and months, we'll be bringing you the best in new Irish short cinema. 

To begin with, we're delighted to present a choice selection of winning Irish shorts from this year's Fastnet Film Festival - take a moment (well, fourteen minutes or thereabouts) and enjoy John Corcoran's splendid Fragile, starring John Colleary, a short film about life, death and phone calls in-between.

Watch more winning short films from this year's Fastnet Film Festival here, and keep an eye out for more new short Irish cinema on RTÉ Culture in the weeks to come.
