Céad Míle Fáilte and welcome to Sydney’s newest film event: the Irish Film Festival, which will take place at the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington from 26-29 March 2015.
The films selected for the Festival reflect the complexity, vitality and diversity of Irish communities in Ireland, Australia and across the globe. From the badlands of North Dublin to the wild west of Connemara, from the pubs of west Cork to the punks of Belfast; the people, the culture, the landscape, the songs, the stories and everything in between.
With a special focus on youth and music, the Festival has been curated by Irish filmmaker and academic Dr Enda V Murray, and will showcase the latest in quality Irish film, including award winning Irish dramas; from BAFTA and Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTA) nominee Good Vibrations, book adaptation and IFTA winner The Sea, and the ‘thought provoking’ Out of Here’, to the hilarious ‘lad-comedy’ The Stag.
Documentaries The Irish Pub; Living in a Coded Land; and Broken Song explore contemporary Irish communities, cultures and issues in Ireland, whilst An Dubh ina Gheal (Assimilation) explores the Irish social history in Australia, and the hidden story of the Indigenous Irish Australian.
Festival tickets range in Price from $30 for a ticket to the Festival Opening Night, which includes a screening of The Stag, to individual screenings priced at $20 for adults, and $15 for concessions.
