Thanks to our friends at Arrow Films and Eclipse Pictures the IFI presents an extraordinary giveaway of a free The Hunt DVD from the IFI Film Shop for the first 100 filmgoers who book IN PERSON for the Opening Night Special Screening of the gripping new drama A Hijacking.

A tense, chilling drama following the emotional journeys of a ship’s crew as they are taken hostage in the Indian Ocean, A HIJACKING was the stand-out film at 2012 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and stars familiar faces fromBorgen and The Killing. A Hijacking is directed by Tobias Lindholm who made his mark on the film world last year as the screenwriter for Cannes prize-winning THE HUNT; this is your chance to catch this hotly-anticipated drama and get one of the arthouse hits of the last year.

There will be a special panel discussion regarding maritime piracy, ongoing security concerns, the psychological impacts on victims and their families plus the economic effects on a major international industry that will take place after the 6.30pm screening at the IFI in Temple Bar, led by Newstalk’s Philip Molloy, film correspondent with The Right Hook on Newstalk Radio for the past 11 years and currently presenter of the weekly movie programme, The Picture Show.

Joining the panel will be former hostage Chirag Bahri, a Marine Engineer whose world was turned upside down when his vessel was hijacked by Somali pirates for 8 months in 2010 and who has since devoted his career to seafarer welfare;Gary Porter an ex-services Corporate Security Manager for Clipper Group who has worked on resolving real-life hijacking situations and appears in A Hijackingas a negotiator; John Toner, President of the Irish Chamber of Shipping and Anthony Gurnee of Ardmore Shipping in Cork who have had one of their vessels boarded in 2010.
