Check out 2018 Halloween Carnival:
Film traces origins of Ireland's biggest Halloween Carnival in Derry back to troubled years of 1980s.
In 1982, Tony Toland, manager of the Castle Bar in Waterloo Street, organised the first Halloween fancy dress competition. Traditionally, before then, only children dressed up.
It was the year after the Hunger Strikes. Derry was depressed, city centre was devastated from bombings. He thought people needed uplifting. We did. Within two years, it had spread to other bars down the street and just took over the city centre by 1985.
It also traces origins of Halloween itself to the Celtic festival of Samhain. Dr. Jenny Butler from the Folklore Department of University College, Cork narrates this.
Film uses footage from spectacular 2013 Inferno show, produced by LUXe, based in Donegal.
