RADE will be screening our new film the second time in the main cinema IFI in Temple Bar at 12.00pm on Wednesday 23rd May. This screening is for Service Users and we welcome all the other projects to join us for another ‘cracker’ from the RADE team, probably their funniest offering yet. A great opportunity for the service users to meet up and a powerful demonstration of the social contribution, that can be made by people in recovery. Please contact RADE by email info@rade.ie or 014548733 and let us know how many people you wish to bring. Book early there are only 258 seats and they’re being snapped up fast.

This short film is an absurd comedy about the desperate state of Ireland’s housing crisis. From unscrupulous landlords to the ‘invisible homeless’ and politicians reverting to Victorian attitudes, there’s never been a worse time to be without a roof over your head.

‘Spare Change’ was developed from the true-life tales of the RADE participants and their first-hand accounts of the current housing crisis.

RADE will also screen their highly acclaimed hilarious film from 2017 “Irish Light V’s Tony”

AONTAS STAR Award 2018


2017 Film accepted for screening in Five Lamps Festival in Dublin in March 2018

We here in Rade are all very excited about the film “Irish Light vs Tony”.  As soon as the date is confirmed we will update you.
