Good news for people who love movies: The Jameson Dublin Film Festival is cooming. Established in 2003, The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival (JDIFF) has fast become Ireland’s premier feature film festival and takes place in Ireland’s capital city over the course of eleven days and nights each February. This year it’s taking place from 16th-26th February. It means that I’ll skip some English classes Ireland. The festival is a citywide event that takes place in all of the Dublin City Centre Cinemas including Cineworld, The Savoy, Screen, Irish Film Institute and Light House Cinema in Smithfield. The majority of films shown at the film festival are Irish premieres, and for some of the films shown, the festival represents the only public screening that will take place in Ireland. Since its inauguration the festival has prided itself on creating a unique forum of exchange between the public and the filmmaking community through hosting a whole range of events that allow the public to interact with filmmakers in the form of public interviews, panel discussions and Q&A sessions. Irish Film Talent is celebrated as an integral part of the JDIFF programme each year by presenting Irish film in all its guises from archival, to documentary, to the very latest Irish feature films from first time film directors. In 2008 the festival inaugurated The Irish Talent Spotlight in order to profile exceptional new and established talent working in all areas of the Irish Film Industry. I’m thinking of asking to the Director of the English Language School to close the school these weeks and doing a new method to learn: learning by cinema! Cheers!
