May brings the annual Bealtaine Festival, a month-long celebration of renewal, creativity and growth in ageing. Coordinated by Age & Opportunity, Bealtaine 2013 is a packed programme of activities that includes film, theatre, dance, art, and music.
May 2013 is also all about Gatsby, with the release of Baz Luhrmann’s much-anticipated adaptation of the classic American novel. For Bealtaine, we are showing the 1974 version, starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow and, in response to the Festival theme “What kind of old do you want to be?”, we’d like to you to unleash your creative side for our Gatsby celebration by dressing in costume, or join the audience for the dance theatre performance of CoisCéim Broadreach.
The IFI is supported by The Arts Council
