The Dublin International Film Festival runs from February 16th-26th with the Gala Opening Night serving as the Irish Premiere of ‘Maudie’, the biopic of folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Lewis) from Aisling Walsh (Song for a Raggy Boy).

Jim Sheridan’s ‘The Secret Scripture’ starring Jack Reynor (Sing Street) and Rooney Mara (Carol) adapted from the award-winning novel by Sebastian Barry, will also receive its premiere on the night.

Reynor and Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) along with director Ben Wheatley will attend the screening of Wheatley’s new film ‘Free Fire’.

ADIFF’s new Centrepiece Gala will focus on Neasa Ní Chianán and David Rane’s ‘In Loco Parentis,’ a documentary study of the Headfort boarding school based in Co. Meath. Read our recent interview with Neasa Ní Chianáin.

Juanita Wilson’s ‘Tomato Red’ which is set to release to Irish cinemas on March 3rd as will Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones) and Jamie Thraves’ ‘Pickups’ in which Gillen plays a semi-fictionalised version of himself—a  troubled actor weighing the price of success. 

Ken Wardrop (His & Hers) brings his characteristic warmth and humanity to piano grade exams in ‘The Piano Lesson’ while John Murray and Traolach Ó Murchú’s ‘Photo City’ delves into the celluloid history of Rochester, NY. 

Rounding up a stellar festival at ADIFF’s prestigious Closing Night Gala is the Irish premiere of ‘Handsome Devil’, John Butler’s (The Stag) new comedy-drama set in an Irish boarding school.
