Coming to Cinemas all over Dublin

Against the furore that accompanied the launch of Peter Stringfellow’s new strip club, the 4th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday night. Golden Globe nominee Cillian Murphy provided the glamour and helped unveil a pretty exciting programme of film screenings.

This time last year I was knee deep in film theory literature for my finals. Going to the cinema was far too much like study. This year I intend to indulge as much as possible in all that the festival has to offer.

The screenings will all take place at the Irish Film Institute, the Screen Cinema, the Savoy and the cinema with seemingly more name changes than Sean ‘P.Diddy’ Combs, Cineworld on Parnell St.

Must-sees should include ‘Copote’, ‘The Ballad of Jack and Rose’ and ‘Paradise Now’ which won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film. The festival will commence with the premiere of ‘Studs’, a film by first time feature film director Paul Mercier and shot last year in West Dublin. Tickets for that appear to be sold out but if you can’t find something else that tickles your fancy from this list, then perhaps cinema just isn’t your thing!? For 8/9 euro I’d also suggest that the showcasing of work by Irish writers and filmmakers at the IFI Film Board Shorts screening is also another cool evening to be enjoyed. For those with an interest in Multimedia the panel discussion on Digital Cinema may represent a potential highlight.
