The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival announced a host of additional guests who will attend screenings at the festival between 16th – 26th February.
Auteur director who can add directing episodes of Mad Men to her list of credits, Lynn Shelton, will attend a Q&A after the additional screening of Your Sister’s Sister, her first feature since the acclaimed Humpday. Marc Evans, who attended the festival in 2007 with In Prison My Whole Life, returns with Hunky Dory, a rite-of-passage film starring Minnie Driver, and featuring a soundtrack to relive all of our youthful summers.
Celebrated international theatre directors Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan (aka Cheek by Jowl) will also fly into Dublin for a post screening Q&A after the much-anticipated adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s novel Bel Ami, which stars Robert Pattinson. The festival is also delighted to welcome first-time director Ruggero Di Paola with his wonderful Italian feature Apartment in Athens.
