Underground Cinema Festival to celebrate Irish talent


The 5th annual Underground Cinema Film Festival will feature a host of homegrown talent, Irish feature films and a large selection of shorts from around the world.

Between September 11th and 14th, 65 films will be shown, highlighting the best in local and international short film-making.

The festival, in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, opens with ‘A Nightingale Falling’, a tragic love story set during the War of Independence, which has been cited as one of the best Irish films of recent years.

Also being screened during the festival are feature films such as ‘Limp’, ‘The Late Men’, ‘How To Be Happy’, ‘Sodium Party’ and the hilarious dark comedy ‘Jack and Ralph Plan a Murder’.

Back by popular demand this year is the free Underground Cinema Expo, allowing those in attendance to meet and greet those making waves in the Irish film industry.

Workshops, panel discussions, and a special screening of Neil Jordan’s ‘Interview With A Vampire’ and a Q&A with the prolific director are set to be highlights of the festival.
