Students and Teachers Vote for your Favourite Irish Film

In 2011, hit Irish film, The Guard, became the most successful independent Irish film ever, reaching number three in the year’s overall box office. The success of the film confirms that Irish audiences will go to see Irish films, and this was borne out too in our research project, Film Focus. This term we are offering you and your students the chance to vote for a screening of your favourite Irish title from a selection that includes The Guard and some of the titles which we have previously shown for schools. A screening of the most popular choice will be preceded by a panel discussion with some of the key names in Irish film today. Students will have the opportunity to hear the filmmakers talk about their work, but also how the success of their film has had an impact on their career.

The panel will include:

Lenny Abrahamson, Director (Adam & Paul, Garage)

Ed Guiney, Producer (The Guard, Garage, Pure Mule)

Marian Quinn, Director (32A)

Andrew Freedman, Producer (His and Hers)

Choose from the following five films. You can vote as a class or individually.
