The Dinner |  Festival 2015 Trailer
A violent video could cause the implosion of two families in The Dinner, an Italian take on the bestseller by Herman Koch. Paolo (Luigi Lo Cascio) is a paediatrician. His wife, Clara (Giovanna Mezzogiorno), is a guide and they have a 16-year-old son, Michele. Paolo’s brother, Massimo (Alessandro Gassman), has a teenage daughter, Benny. On the surface, these brothers and their families have it all. But sources of tension can be spotted from the start. After an (entirely invented) prologue, De Matteo can throw in Koch’s narrative bomb: a video of a homeless woman being kicked to death by two youngsters who look like Benny and Michele. The film isn’t necessarily interested in whether the kids are guilty or not. What matters is how everyone deals with the accusations. The entire ensemble tears into this screenplay with relish, and the way in which the film keeps suggesting new grey areas is remarkable. Boyd van Hoeij The Hollywood Reporter
ADIFF16 | Opening Gala Sing Street
SING SREET With director John Carney (Once, Begin Again) and cast Ferdia Walsh Peelo (Cosmo), Lucy Boynton (Raphina), Jack Reynor (Brendan), Aidan Gillen (Robert), Don Wycherley (Brother Baxter), Kelly Thornton (Ann), Ben Carolan(Darren), Conor Hamilton (Larry), Ian Kenny (Barry), Karl Rice (Garry), Mark McKenna(Eamon) and Percy Chamburuka (Ngig) ADIFF TV present the Opening Gala screening of SING STREET, as part of The Audi Dublin International Film Festival. SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces Conor out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Combining Carney’s trademark warmth and humor with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis, SING STREET is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans across the board. Sing Street will be released by Lionsgate UK in cinemas across Ireland on Thursday 17thMarch. The 2016 Audi Dublin International Film Festival will feature over 80 films from 27 countries, and will welcome over 40 guests to the capital over this 11 day celebration of film. The Dublin International Film Festival is sponsored by Audi, with principal funding from The Arts Council.

JDIFF 2013 | Shell Trailer
'Shell like the petrol station?' asks a man of the eponymous heroine of Scott Graham's debut feature. 'Shell like the beautiful thing you get in the sea,' the affection-starved 17-year-old replies. Manning a practically disused service station in the remotest highlands of Scotland, Shell lives with only her broken-down mechanic father Pete (Joseph Mawle) for company. All is clearly not right in Shell's world, but she's intrinsically a bright soul who has an effect on everyone she encounters. Pete, meanwhile, is taciturn, damaged, an epileptic who is terrified of physical warmth, perhaps for good reason. This leaves Shell alone to deal with the attentions of local loners (Graham again draws strong performances from Michael Smiley and young Iain de Caestecker) when all she really wants is her dad. Graham's shorts -- Shell, and in particular Native Son -- have provided a strong sense of where this young director's preoccupations lie. As a feature debut, Shell fulfils these expectations while holding out the promise of more to come. Right from the opening moments, where he plays with proportions and perspective from the window of a truck, Graham has his say in Shell and he should find viewers who are eager to listen.

Alan Rickman In Conversation Dublin International Film Festival 2015
Alan Rickman in conversation with Esther McCarthy at DIFF 2015 "Ireland's very special to me, I had an Irish grand mother I never knew. It's like meeting a bit of your past every time I come here." Alan Rickman. "One of the highlights of last year's film festival was welcoming Alan Rickman to Dublin - an acclaimed actor turned director with one of the most distinctive voices in Cinema. When I introduced Alan Rickman before the Irish premiere of A Little Chaos I mentioned how I had, like so many others, first seen him on screen in 1988 as Hans Gruber in Die Hard - a role which redefined the cinema villain - and how he broke our hearts in Anthony Minghella's Truly Madly Deeply. In a career which spanned nearly 70 film roles - among his most loved are his Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, the caddish adulterer in Love Actually and Eamonn de Valera in Michael Collins - he also directed two well received films: The Winter Guest and A Little Chaos. He was widely considered the definitive Valmont in the 1985 production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses. One of his finest trademarks was the dexterity and snap with which he used his voice, he wrapped his body around dialogue - generating enormous power from the most simple of lines. Its so sad to think that the lovely man and great actor has now been silenced." Gráinne Humphreys - ADIFF Festival Director.

Queens of Syria |  Festival 2015 Trailer
Syrian refugees in Jordan incorporate their stories of exile while workshopping Euripides’ The Trojan Women in Yasmin Fedda’s absorbing documentary. Since 2013, more than one million Syrians have declared refugee status. Jordan hosts more than 600,000 of them, and it’s there, in the capital Amman, that a group of filmmakers and producers came up with the idea of staging an adapted form of The Trojan Women with women who have themselves recently lived through the kind of ferocious war and bitter exile faced by the characters in the play. 60 women signed up, none of whom had acting experience, committing to seven weeks of rehearsals before curtain time. As the days count down the attrition rate increases. Some husbands aren’t comfortable with the idea of their wives on stage, while others fear retribution from Syrian authorities should they attempt to return home. The final staging is both choral and singular, the stark immediacy of their traumas given added potency, thanks to the minimalist production design. Jay Weissberg Variety

Fis Na Fuiseoige | Official Trailer
In Ireland person and place are inseparable. Sense of place has shaped the Irish literary imagination and Irish identity from earliest times. Fís na Fuiseoige is a new one-hour documentary that explores the deep connection between People and Place, as expressed in Irish-language poetry and local lore. Filmed over a year using state-of-the-art aerial cinematography, the film is a stunning visual exploration of the vast diversity of local places in Ireland as seen from a birds-eye perspective, illuminated by local stories and by the deep poetic perspective expressed in the writings of this country’s leading Irish-language poets who have written about the importance of place.
JDIFF 2013 | Struck By Lightning Trailer
The 'high school misfit against the world' concept has been mined in the movie world many times before, but that doesn't stop Glee star Chris Colfer's scripting debut from offering up plenty of smart and quirky moments. The film begins with the death (the 'struck by lightning' of the title) of 17-year-old Carson Phillips (Colfer), who then narrates a look-back at his troubled high school life. He is editor of the school newspaper, but is despised and largely ignored by his schoolmates and only has one best friend, Malerie Baggs (played with a good deal of quirky charm by Australian actress Rebel Wilson, who featured in Bridesmaids). Home life is little better for Carson. He lives with his single mother (Allison Janney), whose life is based around booze and prescription drugs since his father Neal (Dermot Mulroney) left them. Her life is thrown up in the air when dad arrives back in town, along with his pregnant girlfriend April (Christina Hendricks). Janney is wonderful as his sarcastic, boozy, seemingly unemotional mother, and the scenes she has with the equally fine Christina Hendricks as her former husband's new partner are high points in the film.

Sorrow And Joy | Festival 2015 Trailer
http://bit.ly/1b2d69N - Book Tickets Now! Nils Malmros is one of the most important Danish directors of recent decades, acclaimed for a highly personal series of films (including Boys and Tree of Knowledge) that mine his own youthful experiences. But he has waited forty years to make a film inspired by the most traumatic events of his life. Johannes (Jakob Cedergren), an ambitious young film director, is newly married to Signe (Helle Fagralid), a schoolteacher. Together they have a baby girl called Maria. One day Johannes arrives home to find that the unthinkable has happened: Signe, who suffers from depression, has killed their child. Determined to save Signe from a lifetime of psychiatric ‘detention’, even as he struggles to come to terms with the tragedy, Johannes tries to persuade the psychiatrist assessing her that she can be released into his care. But in doing so he is forced to confront his own culpability in the events that led up to Maria’s death. Graced by magnificent performances, Sorrow and Joy is an intensely moving work from one of the great European auteurs. Alistair Daniel Jameson Dublin International Film Festival With the support of the Danish Film Institute With special guest Nils Malmros
Coming Home | Festival 2015 Trailer
http://bit.ly/1EXE9xU - Book Tickets Now! Coming Home follows Angel Cordero as he is released from prison after serving 13 years. We are welcomed into Angel’s life as if we are a trusted friend. This is assured filmmaking by Viko Nikci that trusts and follows the heart of the story, as if it went looking for a portrait of a man but found something much more. When I first saw clips I thought it was a scripted fiction feature drama. I could not believe what was captured, that I was witnessing a man’s journey back to himself in the most intimate of ways. Angel is at times searingly honest, at times broken, but always hopeful, always profoundly human. You realise that coming ‘home’ is all-encompassing and undefinable. It’s a place, it’s a time, it’s a daughter, it’s a Polaroid picture, it’s a never-ending search. The heart that beats in this story is the heart that sustained an innocent man through 13 years of wrongful incarceration. It is the heart that puts freedom on the line to cross state lines to give his estranged daughter a birthday present. It is the heart that looks the true perpetrator of the crime in the eye and manages to surprise us all. Kirsten Sheridan Writer-director

JDIFF 2013 | Teddy Bear Trailer
Danish director Mads Matthiesen's feature expansion of his much-lauded 2007 short film, Dennis, recounts a gentle giant's struggle to overcome crippling shyness and take hold of his life. Dennis (Kim Kold) is a mountain of tattooed muscle, a 38-year-old professional bodybuilder with a gruff face and a timid heart. He's also got a controlling mother, Ingrid (Elsebeth Steentoft), a needy, suffocating nag who treats him like a child. Lying to his mother about his destination, Dennis travels to Thailand, setting out in search of romance. Drawn to the only place he feels at ease, Dennis wanders into a local gym where he begins a hesitant flirtation with Toi (Lamaiporn Sangmanee Hougaard), the widowed owner. Back home, he begins quietly making plans to bring Toi over. But when he tells his mother the truth about his absence, bitter reproach, spitefulness and emotional blackmail follow. The contrast between Dennis' formidable physical presence and his withdrawn manner is nicely played by Kold. Seeing him so intimidated by his tiny, frail mother is both funny and moving. Teddy Bear is not the most substantial film, but it has a restrained charm and an emotional payoff in keeping with its prevailing understatement.

JDIFF 2013 | Programme Launch
On Wed 23rd January the amazing 2013 Jameson Dublin International Film Festival programme has been revealed to the public.

JDIFF 2013 | Hardy Bucks the Movie Trailer
Made for a paltry but impressive €300,000, The Hardy Bucks Movie has been a long time coming. Featuring characters that have appeared in previous guises both online and on national broadcaster RTÉ, the best thing about the show's expansion from a weekly prime-time TV instalment to a feature-length movie is that its directors are instilled with a newfound freedom to push new boundaries. The Hardy Bucks Movie is a gleefully unhinged crowd-pleaser with an inherently Irish sense of humour. That sense of humour takes them to strange places, both comedically and geographically -- it is a road trip movie, after all -- and really allows the gifted cast to go all out. Their strand of comedy feels improvised but also serves to engage the audience in new ways, with the main cast -- but particularly lead man 'The Viper' himself (Chris Tordoff) -- turning in very strong performances.

Meet The Volunteers | Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2015
Volunteering is a fantastic way to experience the cinematic celebration that the festival brings to Dublin each year, and presents a wonderful opportunity to gain first hand experience into how an event of this scale is managed and organised. But not only this, volunteering becomes a community that lives beyond the festival, evolving into both social and professional circles in The Arts. Though primarily a vital element to ensuring the smooth running of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, our Volunteer Programme is fast becoming a force unto itself that sees many individuals returning year after year and so contributing to the festival’s continued success.

BLIND | Festival 2015 Trailer
http://bit.ly/1FKQl3v - Book tickets now! There is something about using a visual medium to explore blindness that makes Eskil Vogt’s directorial debut intriguing. But it’s where he and actor Ellen Dorrit Petersen take that premise, and how stylishly and wittily they do so, that makes the film compelling, clever and surprisingly warm. Since losing her sight, Ingrid (Ellen Dorrit Petersen) has become reclusive, never leaving the apartment. We cut to another story, focusing on Einar (Marius Kolbenstvedt), a chronic consumer of pornography whose loneliness leads him to spy on a pretty neighbour, Elin. At first the shifts from story to story are a puzzle but soon we realize that Einar and Elin are figments of a story Ingrid is writing. But Ingrid starts writing her husband into the story, and Elin starts taking on more and more of Ingrid herself. This is a peculiarly beautiful film, with the kind of hard-won optimism that feels truthful as well as hopeful. Stylish and engaging, and laying out a fine manifesto for the power of the imagination, Blind is a magnificently clear-sighted film. Jessica Kiang The Playlist

Sand Dollars | Festival 2015 Trailer
http://bit.ly/18ABnSE - Book Tickets Now! Imagine a single-sex version of Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise: Love, transposed to the Dominican Republic, and you’re getting close to the spirit of this delicate, honest tale of the relationship between a French grandmother – played with slowburn passion by Geraldine Chaplin – and a young Dominican girl. Svelte young Noeli (Yanet Mojica) makes a living by befriending rich foreigners in an upscale Dominican beach resort. Her boyfriend (Ricardo Ariel Toribio) is happy to live off her earnings. Noeli’s main client is Anne (Chaplin), a solitary, ageing Frenchwoman who seems to need the young girl as much for companionship as for sex, and has a plan to take her back to France. The boyfriend is wary, jealous but also conflicted by his need for the money Noeli brings home. The story will resolve itself in a surprising way that yet feels entirely believable. It’s a film with a restless motion, a film about people in transit (on motorbikes, on foot, in life), in which the question of whether to stay or whether to go takes on a special, existential resonance.
