A look at Day 7 of ADIFF 2016 - Wednesday 24th February, when Charlie Chapin returned to Dublin screens to entertain and delight audiences of all ages in City Hall as people watched films that were screened 100 years ago in the week of the rising, in 1916 at the Pictures. The BAI ran another successful Screentest as experts discussed cutting edge technology and film. Evanna Lynch joined film maker Simon Fitzmaurice for a Red Carpet screening of the Irish Film in our Fantastic Flicks category - My Name is Emily. Then we headed to the Light House for another Irish Film by Rebecca Daly - Mammal, which had both director Daly and actor Barry Keoghan in attendance. All in all a good day at ADIFF.
We went Behind the Scenes again in the third Broadcasting Authority of Ireland Screentest event as Darragh Doyle hosted BYOD - Bring Your own Device in The Teachers Club where a panel of experts talked about how new cutting edge apps will rapidly become the thing you cannot live without.
In 1916, Dublin’s cinemas were showing Charlie Chaplin films - The Champion, The Bank & The Tramp, so these were relived again in Dublin City Hall in 1916 at The Pictures and accompanied by live improvised music from Morgan Cooke.
Movies@Dundrum had a packed house for a screening of Irish Film - My Name is Emily where special guests Evanna Lynch, Director Simon Fitzmaurice and Producers Lesley McKinn and Kathryn Kennedy were in attendance.
Finally, another great Irish Film Mammal had its screening in Light House Cinema with cast member and ADIFF Discovery nominee Barry Keoghan and director Rebecca Daly on the Red Carpet.
