Kerry Film Festival has announced that it will host a parallel premiere screening of The Lobster on Thursday, 8th October in Killarney. The film will premiere in Dublin on the same night, but as the film was shot in Kerry, Kerry Film Festival has secured a rare parallel screening of the film for local audiences here.
Winning the Jury Award at the Cannes Film Festival this year, the film is the highly anticipated English language debut of internationally acclaimed Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos and is set for general release in Ireland on 16th October.
Starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly and Ben Whishaw, The Lobster was shot on location at Coilltes Dromore Woods and at the Parknasilla Resort, and because of the location it naturally had a great number of local crew involved.
The Kerry Film Festival runs 21 – 25 October 2015
