Killruddery Film Festival launch

The launch of the Killruddery Film Festival will take place on Wednesday, 9th February, and will see the programme announced for this year’s festival. The 2011 line-up will continue to bring lost, overlooked and forgotten cinema to Irish audiences.

Silent films and music will once again feature strongly in the line-up as will Irish material, including a close look at the New York based Kalem Film Company, producers of the first fiction films in Ireland. A highlight of this year’s programme is a dramatic recreation of a 19th Century Magic Lantern performance.

The festival will take place in Killruddery House and Gardens in Co. Wicklow, 10–13 March 2011, with Kevin Brownlow returning this year as a special guest after his recent Oscar win.
