The 20th Titanic International Film Festival (5-13 April Budapest)

This year’s Titanic International Film Festival will feature a selection of contemporary Irish films, titled Emerald Island, corresponding with the Irish EU presidency in 2013. The section contains six feature films and a selection of 10 outstanding short films and animations as well.

Lenny Abrahamson’s  What Richard Did  will run in competition. It tells the fateful story of a gifted and gilded Dublin teenager whose bright future is compromised after a senseless act of violence.

There will be four further films running in Emerald Island – the hilarious horror-comedy, Grabbers. Citadel, directed by Ciarán Foy, adds to the horror, but with a much darker shade:

Good Vibrations by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn tells the story of the legendary, radical Belfast punk-rock rebel, Terri Holey.

Plus the festival will screen Keys To The City  the first film from directors Christopher Brennan, Mel Cannon and Laura Way.

The documentary, Knuckle is also included in Emerald Island – an epic 12-year journey into the brutal and secretive world of an Irish Traveller community.

The section also contains a 109-minute selection of 10 outstanding short films and ainmations.


The 20th jubilee TITANIC INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL will run between 5-13th April. It gives an overall selection of the best contemporary films. This year 60 films will be presented of famous and first-film directors as well and it also shows fascinating pieces of less-known regions too. Titanic operates as a Competition Festival since 2005.
