We're often asked 'what's good to see...?' Naturally, we think everything is goo! It's like asking us to choose a favourite child - but help is at hand! Our Festival Producer, Fiona Clark, recommends this, her own personal strategy, to help you pick your Festival line-up:
"First, choose your stand-out favourite
, the film you know you absolutely can't afford to miss; then go for something that's caught your eye and you think you quite fancy
; and finally, make a random decision and take a flutter
on something completely unknown: a Favourite, a Fancy and a Flutter!"
With that in mind, we put Fiona to the test. Here are her three 'F's' for the Opening Weekend:
Favourite: The Old Man and the Gun
- Robert Redford, no further explanation required!
Fancy: Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes
- it being Jazz weekend in Cork right now, I'll want more of this during our Festival...
Flutter: Tito and the Birds
- pigeons save the world from fake news epidemic - that's got to be worth a punt!
