launches Dublin film festival...
The Miller 16th Dublin Film Festival announced
its official programme this week at a launch in Mono,
Dublin and ShowBizIreland.com were their to
get all the gossip with Flora Montgomery the
star of the new Roddy Doyle film When Brendan
The main programme offers an exciting range of truly
international titles to please and provoke in equal
measure. There are multiple selections from the cinemas
of France, Italy, Germany, Australia and fascinating
work from Morocco, Tunisia, Japan, Iceland, Sweden,
India, Brazil and Argentina.
Joel Schumacher's Tigerland has to be
one of the most eagerly awaited films of recent years
as is Christopher Guest's Best In Show
- a sure festival winner. Other gems include the European
premieres of a host of American indies: from genre
rethinks like Bruised Orange (displaced Dubliner
Donal Tavy toiling in Chicago-set crime territory),
to a cross-over gay crowd-pleaser like Big Eden,
to a nearly-Hollywood left-fielder like How To
Kill Your Neighbour's Dog.
programme also boasts seven outstanding Canadian pictures
including Robert Lepage's Possible Worlds
and the superbly witty Kanadiana; the controversial
The Isle from Korea (with a couple of hands-over-the-eyes-sequences
with fish-hooks); a multiple awards winner from Mexico
(Love's A Bitch); old-master entries from the
likes of Oshima, Chabrol and Altman
as well as such established talents as Michael
Haneke, Takeshi Kitano, Tom Tykwer and Fernando
Trueba; oddly numbered nods at the diversity of
Dogme-disciplined filmmaking (the Danish-produced,
desert-set Lear The King Is Alive is no. 4,
while the US indie Reunion is no. 17); and
a Euro-Visions section which ranges from the Hungarian
Our Love to the German/Irish Conamara.
highlights include the two World Premieres: If
I Should Fall From Grace and Willfull.
The former is Sarah Share's Irish-produced summation
of the evolving enigma that is Shane MacGowan;
featuring classic footage from Nipple Erectors,
Pogues and Popes, as well as yer man both
living and obscuring his own legend in the course
of a single sentence. The latter is the directorial
debut of Rebel Penfold-Russell, as accessibly
audacious in its way as the Aussie film she's most
famous for producing, The Adventures of Priscilla,
Queen of the Desert.
all those C'n W aficionados there is a rolling showcase
of Hollywood's productive dalliance with Country and
Western music aptly titled Country Hearts, Country
Hurts, including Sweet Dreams and Coalminer's
Daughter at UCI's Coolock, Tallaght and
ever, the Festival is an international, non-competitive
event, showcasing an impressive slate of feature films
new to Dublin audiences, plus the cream of new short-film
production. This years programme will be supported
by public talks, round-tables and interviews with
the filmmaking guests.
