December at the IFI

From a full retrospective of films of Alfred Hitchcock, to a host of Irish and international features and the unmissable Christmas classics - that's December at the IFI!

Starting this month, and running well into 2013, the IFI is delighted to present a full retrospective of the 52 surviving films of Alfred Hitchcock. This is a truly unique opportunity for our audiences to immerse  themselves in the films of this giant of cinema. This is the largest season the IFI has ever undertaken and will run until March 2013, presenting the films thematically instead of chronologically. So whether you’re seeing some of them for the first time or rediscovering a classic you never thought you’d see on the big screen again, this is a season for true cineastes.

As we get ready to say goodbye to 2012, we have great films to help the year go out with a bang! Some big titles from November continue into December with AmourThe Master and The Hunt all still on offer. The IFI’s commitment to Irish film continues with two features: Ian Fitzgibbon’s Death of a Superhero and Kirsten Sheridan’s Dollhouse. Both films demonstrate some stunning performances from young actors.

There are fantastic classics on offer this month including re-releases of Lawrence of Arabia (celebrating its 50th anniversary), Babette’s Feast, and the Bette Davis and Joan Crawford masterpiece What Ever happened to Baby Jane?

We have great films lined up for Christmas too. Frank Capra’s unforgettable It’s a Wonderful Life is back on the big screen for the festive season, while the IFI Family screening for this month, WhenSanta Fell to Earth, is packed full of Christmas cheer. If you’re feeling ‘anti-Christmas’, be sure to have some fun with Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa and Bill Murray in Scrooged.
