Extra Screening of 'Float Like a Butterfly'
Post-Screening Q&A with Director Carmel Winters

Float Like a Butterfly writer/director Carmel Winters will attend a second screening of her award-winning film and give a post-screening Q&A in The Everyman on Saturday 10th November. 

The highly-anticipated European premiere of Float Like a Butterfly was recently announced as the Opening Night Gala of the 63rd edition of Cork Film Festival and tickets are selling fast. Festival Producer/CEO Fiona Clark stated "we're delighted that Cork writer/director Carmel Winters will also attend a second screening of her inspirational coming-of-age film and share with our audiences some behind-the-scenes insights about the film, which was shot in west Cork."

Float Like a Butterfly is a life-affirming story that fiercely challenges patriarchy and stereotypes. The story follows fiery Frances (Hazel Doupe) an Irish girl from the Travelling community and the pursuit of her dream to be a boxer, in rural Ireland during the 1960s, inspired by her hero Muhammad Ali.

Winner, FIPRESCI Prize, Toronto International Film Festival, 2018

Closing Night Gala: Irish Premiere of Capernaum (Capharnaüm) Tickets Onsale Now 

Tickets to the Closing Night Gala of award-winning Lebanese film Capernaum (Capharnaüm) are in high demand so don't miss out and book now. Cork Film Festival will conclude on 18th November with the Irish Premiere of Nadine Labaki's powerful film which won the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2018.

Set in Beirut, it tells the courageous story of a child who sues his parents for bringing him into a world of poverty. Capernaum compassionately takes on the issue of child poverty and emerges as a moving critique of the broken system which denies 12-year-old Zain basic dignity and confines him to wretched circumstances.

Capernaum confirms Nadine Labaki as one of the most vital directors working anywhere in the world today.
