Please join us for our new programme of FREE informal afternoon talks by IFI staff offering a chance for cinema lovers to delve further into the IFI programme and explore the stories behind the films.
IN THE FRAME OF THE FATHER: FILMMAKING CLERGY FROM SILENT DAYS TO STELLA DAYS
Stella Days is based on a memoir about the establishment of a cinema by Canon Patrick Cahill in a small Tipperary town in 1957. This experience, though worthy of memoir and now feature film, was not unique.
In a generously illustrated presentation, IFI Curator Sunniva O’Flynn will explore the phenomenon of film exhibiting and filmmaking by other clergy people in Ireland from the 1930s to the 1970s and will reveal the true story of the amateur production, Aran of the Saints, which features in Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s film.
This event is FREE but ticketed. Please call the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 to book your seat.
