Your Royal Snapchat Highness James Kavanagh shares the best things you can do in Dublin this weekend!}

1) Dublin Smartphone Film Festival, Saturday @ Generator Hostel 
The Dublin Smartphone Film Festival is a brand new international festival dedicated to celebrating work shot on Smartphone and Tablets. No longer is expensive technology a barrier to creativity. The mobile phone has expanded the scope and freedom for filmmakers, providing limitless possibilities in the palm of your hand. The festival was created with the goal of encouraging filmmakers to share the stories they have captured on mobile devices and to provide smartphone filmmakers with a platform to exhibit these stories to a wider audience.

2) Ireland's Fashion Radicals @ The Little Museum of Dublin
The 1950s is often described as a dark decade in Irish history. But amidst the gloom, a small group of fashion designers – mostly women – found international fame. Now a brilliant new exhibition at the Little Museum salutes the talent and courage of these fashion pioneers.

4) Sunday Social Launch, Sunday @ Farrier & Draper  
If anyone fancies a Sunday bop, this is where to go! It’s very rare apart maybe from The George, that one building can lay claim to such a long running rich gay history in Dublins ever changing gay club landscape. Powerscourt Townhouse, which houses our new home for Sunday Social in Farrier & Draper, can loftily lay such a claim.
