Stormtroopers and Heroes of the Empire
Sunday 7pm in the Martello Suite

Stormtroopers is a fan film about a platoon of Stormtroopers who raid a remote Rebel Mining outpost.  Stormtroopers was filmed in Ireland on location in Cork, Waterford & Tipperary.

Written and Directed by Michael Fitzgerald

Produced by Cork Racing

Running Time 16 Mins

Origin: Ireland

This 60 minute documentary follows the 501st UK Garrison Star WarsTM costuming club around the UK as they attend a variety of fundraising events - revealing the side of costuming you’ve never seen before. 

From international film premieres to children’s hospital visits, witness the impact that the UK Garrison (UKG) have on the hearts and minds of the fans they meet. 

Many people have a misguided perception of costumers, labelling them as “nerds” and “geeks”. In order to change this perception, we were given the privileged opportunity to meet the families and the fans who have been directly inspired and supported by the UKG. 

The film will reveal the wide variety of people who are inspired to join the UKG, from all walks of life and occupations. For these individuals, being “Heroes of the Empire” is their true identity.
