Festival Round-Up: Cork Film Festival, Irish Film Festival London & Feminist Film Festival
01 Nov 2016 : Katie McNeice
'I Am Not a Serial Killer' directed by Billy O'Brien
Recent and upcoming film festivals continue to showcase the bounty of work produced and screened in Ireland in the past year, and the wealth of international titles shown to local audiences.

The IFI Horrothon concluded yesterday, Monday October 31st, with a particular honour this year paid to Peter Cushing (Twins of Evil).

Irish titles included ‘My Father, Die’ from Sean Brosnan and Dublin-based feature ‘Don’t You Recognise Me’ from Jason Figgis. Mark Sheridan’s ‘Crone Wood’ set in Co. Wicklow also featured in the line-up, and marks his directorial feature debut.

Notable international titles included Oscar-winning ‘The Fly’ from Canadian horror master David Cronenberg (Rabid) and 1986 comedy horror ‘Critters’ from Stephen Herek.

Cork Film Festival, November 11th - 20th
The programme for the 61st Cork Film Festival was announced late last month, with seventy feature films and over a hundred short films included in the line-up.

Leading Irish titles are Billy O’Briens’ ‘I Am Not a Serial Killer’, which also received three nominations at the British Independent Film Awards 2016 just this morning, for Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Max Records) and Best Supporting Actor (Christopher Lloyd).

Other special screenings and events include a Deaf Shorts line-up on Saturday November 19th, from Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival. The Industry Documentary Day, which is supported by Screen Training Ireland will bring together Irish and international industry leaders on Friday, November 18th in the River Lee Hotel.
