With IFI Stranger Than Fiction running over the weekend, live music gigs in the foyer, a release of Woody Allen’s long-anticipated Blue Jasmine and late night screenings, including Robin Hardy’s cult classic The Wicker Man, make it a weekend of film celebrations at the IFI!
If there’s one place to visit this weekend, it must be the IFI! Our annual documentary film festival, IFI Stranger Than Fiction, kicks off tonight with an Irish premiere of The Great Hip Hop Hoax, followed by a selection of the very best Irish and international films and Q&As with special guests. Wicklow-based The Cujo Family will be performing live on Saturday in the foyer, following a screening of Where The Blue Flowers Grow, and everyone is invited to join us for a series of workshops and discussions with leading figures from the industry about how to develop your documentary filmmaking skills and career.
To celebrate the release of Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, the 40th anniversary of The Wicker Man and the release of Mister John from Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor, we’ve also added some extra screenings on this weekend. You can catch Blue Jasmine on Friday at 22.30 & Saturday at 22.50, Mister John on Friday at 22.40 & Saturday at 22.15, and The Wicker Man on Friday at 22.30 & Saturday at 22.15.
