We've just sent the October programme to print which promises some great new releases, and also contains information on Darklight 2010, Civility in Crisis (our Polish Season in collaboration with the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival), a four week evening course, a preview of an award-winning film with a very special guest, and a host of other events. Full details will be announced on September 29th.
To top it all off, we've also included a taster of some of the titles in this year's Horrorthon (October 21-25) which promises to send shivers down the most hardened of spines. The full Horrorthon programme is being kept closely under wraps, but we will be presenting it shortly. (Don't forget to look out for a separate flyer on the Festival to get all the gory details!)
This week we have the usual comings and goings. If you haven't managed to catch the wonderful, restored version of Metropolis (which received five star reviews across the board) catch it before it finishes this Thursday (Sept 23rd). Also finishing on Thursday is Certified Copy which stars Juliette Binoche in the role that bagged her a Best Actress Award at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Having said goodbye to these two films, it opens the way for a few new (and familiar) faces. Opening Friday (Sept 24) we have the wonderful classic From Here to Eternity (remind yourself of what's in store by viewing the trailer) and Gaspar Noé's Enter the Void (watch the trailer). If you fancy something FREE, we're participating in Culture Night by offering a screening of Into The West from the IFI Irish Film Archive at 18.50 this Friday. You can get your tickets by calling the box office on 01 679 3477 or calling into the IFI.
Not being content with getting the October programme off to print, we've also polished off the IFI Education Autumn/Winter Programme which provides full details of the school screenings taking place at the IFI and nationwide from October through to January. The details will be announced on September 29th but if you want to recieve a copy of the programme, contact our Education department on 01 679 5744 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And finally, if you're in the mood for rebellion, we have the perfect weekend lined up for you. Starting on Saturady, Before the Revolution is a special season of films curated by Enrique Juncosa offering a selection of titles that mark the social change and poltical activism of the 1960s which culminated in the events of May 1968. Screenings include Antonioni's Blow Up, Godard's Week-End and Bertolucci's Partner.
We hope you enjoy all we have in store!
