SOBER MINDS is an autobiographical short documentary that showcases the beauty of urban wildlife through breathtaking photography and powerful anecdotes.
SOBER MINDS had its World Premiere at the Oscar and BAFTA qualifying Rhode Island International Film Festival. The Irish Premiere took place at Fingal Film Festival with an outdoor screening at Swords Castle. Our short documentary has since headed to St. George, Utah where it screened at DocUtah International Documentary Film Festival and then at Tacoma Film Festival. It was nominated for Best Short Documentary at Kinsale Shark Awards before winning at Dublin International Short Film and Music Festival.
The Soundtrack for Sober Minds by Rob Smith’s Swedish Railway Music Orchestra has since been released on Spotify.
