SUPER CINE SATURDAY
Wherever you are across Cork City and County, join us on Super Cine Saturday on 25th November for a feast of Festival films.
Cork International Film Festival is delighted to have teamed up with six Cork city- and county-wide venues – The Reel Picture Ballincollig and Blackpool; Cinemax Bantry; Gate Cinemas Midleton and Mallow; and Regal Cinema Youghal – who will exclusively show a ‘Taste of CIFF’ with three specially selected feature films from the 68th Festival programme:
Robot Dreams by Pablo Berger (12pm, Sat 25th Nov):
It’s 1980s’ New York: dog lives in an apartment in Manhattan, and decides to put an end to being alone by building himself a robot companion. A gorgeous animation for the whole family. Robot Dreams will also screen on Sun, 12th Nov in The Everyman.
One Night in Millstreet by Andrew Gallimore (2.30pm, Sat 25th Nov):
The St. Patrick’s weekend of 1995 witnessed an extraordinary thing, a world championship boxing match deep in the countryside of County Cork between Super Middleweight Champion, Chris Eubank, and the hungry challenger from Cabra, Steve Collins. Take a ringside seat to the giddy and hype-laden hoopla!
One Night in Millstreet will have its world premiere as our Irish Gala on Sat, 11th Nov in The Everyman.
In competition for the inaugural CIFF Best New Irish Feature Award, proudly supported by the Irish Examiner.
Fallen Leaves (Kuolleet lehdet) by Aki Kaurismäki (4.30pm, Sat 25th Nov):
Immerse yourself in this heartwarming, delightful treat from the master of Finnish dark comedies… Aki Kaurismäki’s Fallen Leaves tells a story of Ansa and Holappa, two lonely souls in Helsinki looking for love. Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival. “Beguiling and delightful … A film with a big heart.” The Guardian
