Do you fancy a movie? Are in in Dublin from 16th to 26th? If so, you are in the right place. The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival is taking place. The idea of the event is to flood Dublin’s cinemas with over 140 screenings. Furthermore, Hollywood Greats Al Pacino (needs no introduction), Glenn Close (Cruella in 101 Dalmatians, Fatal Attraction), Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, Planet of the Apes), Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Michael Madsen (Free Willy, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs) will attend the festival.
Unfortunately, some screenings have already sold out. Like the one which Al Pacino is going to attend (20th, 19h30, at the Savoy for Wilde Salomé, a story based on “The New Testament of Salomé”, written by Oscar Wilde).
On the plus side, loads of movies are just 8 euros.
During this, its 10th year, the festival will screen 100,000 minutes of film. You will have Irish (with 16 new features and documentaries and 19 short films), German, French, Russian movies, and so on. It’s going to take place at Cineworld (Parnell Street, Dublin 1), the Lighthouse Cinema (Blackmall Walk, Smithfield Market, Dublin 7) and the Savoy (17 Upper O’Connell Street, Dublin 1). The best way to purchase your ticket is to visit the festival website (jdiff.com).
The Gala presentation is going to be at the Savoy, 19h30 on Thursday 16th, with Cloudburst, starring the Irish actress Brenda Fricker (Veronica Guerin). Tickets for this screening have sold out.
But, choose your film and you and your friends will have a great time. Both discovering new movies and learning English!
