Film Ireland’s Winter Issue is out now and packed with essential reading beside the fire over these coming months. Brendan Gleeson and his sons Brian and Domhnall talk exclusively to Film Ireland magazine. This lively issue also spotlights Irish documentaries in the Corona Cork Film Festival 7–14 November including Sé Merry Doyle’s Dreaming the Quiet Man about the making of the John Ford classic, and Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s much talked about The Pipe.
One Hundred Mornings director, Conor Horgan, discusses his interesting route to becoming a feature’s director. Minister Mary Hanafin gives the low-down on budget cuts and the value of the arts.
The issue also includes a round up of 16 must-have gadgets and gizmos for Christmas – one of which we’re giving away to one lucky reader.
There’s also a look at some vintage cimena from the Irish Film Archive and the first appearance of Film Ireland’s new comic strip, which casts an eye over on-set life. All this and much more.
Christmas has come early this year…
In our “Dreaming the Quiet Man” article on page 14 we incorrectly quoted Sé Merry Doyle as saying ‘We just hung around and I met Nancy and Jack Murphy who own Cohan’s hardware store, which, in the film, was Cohan’s barber shop”. During shooting Cohan’s hardware store was used as Cohan’s Bar in the film and the hardware store was later converted into a bar.
