Killruddery Film Festival, established in 2007, kicks off today. Over the weekend 15 films will be shown. Some movies will be screened in the library, some in the Orangery; they will touch on topics like Technology, Art, Politics, Adventure and History; some will be presented by experts, curators and film makers, others will simply screen without introduction; some are for children, small and big alike, and some are suitable for a more mature audience; some are silent with live accompaniment, some are black and white and some are colour; all are classics that deserve to be shown and deserve to be seen and enjoyed.
The Film Festival is presented by Killruddery Arts, a non-profit organisation. It is a bi-annual event and it is driven by the passion of Killruddery’s Creative Director, Fionnuala Ardee, The Film Festival’s Programme Manager, Cathrine Agnew and Contributors, Kevin Brownlow, Andrew Legge, Daniel Fitzpatrick and Others. Come and Share in our passion, come to the movies!
