Some cork­ers bound for Cork

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Cork French Film Fes­ti­val, spon­sored by Bord Gáis En­ergy, kicks off on Sun­day night. As ever, the pro­gramme is im­pres­sive. The open­ing film will be Agnès Varda’s Nou­velle Vague clas­sic Cléo from 5 to 7 (ap­par­ently an Ir­ish pre­miere of the 1962 film). The event will fea­ture a ret­ro­spec­tive of Varda’s work, and the great woman will be on hand to dis­cuss her films.

Screen­ings and events take place in a num­ber of lo­ca­tions. Among the delights are a “cine-con­cert” at Bal­ly­maloe House mark­ing the 150th an­niver­sary of the birth of Ge­orges Méliès, ma­gi­cian of silent cin­ema, and a se­ries of early French films scored by Donal Dineen.
