Logically, spock and saoirse are among Miriam's highlights

"We're very excited that Zachary Quinto, who plays Mr Spock in the JJ Abrams Star Trek films, is coming over for a special screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness. So festival-goers will be able to watch the film and ask Mr Spock anything they like about it afterwards.

"Saoirse Ronan is the subject of our public interview this year, and she'll be talking about her extraordinary career so far. I'm also looking forward to a lot of the Irish features, and in particular Run & Jump, Steph Green's love story which stars Maxine Peake and Will Forte from Saturday Night Live, who'll be coming over for the screening. That's on Saturday night.

"On the Friday night, we have the world premiere of Life's a Breeze, Lance Daly's comic drama with Pat Shortt, Eva Birthistle and Fionnula Flanagan. People will remember Lance's critically acclaimed 2008 film Kisses, and Life's a Breeze is another fantastic film."
