Say hello to KK’S Sub­ti­tle

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

In fur­ther en­cour­ag­ing fes­ti­val news, the first Sub­ti­tle Euro­pean Film Fes­ti­val will kick off in Kilkenny on Mon­day. Holly Carey, the fes­ti­val di­rec­tor, has set out to bring the films that haven’t made it past art­house cine­mas to a wider au­di­ence.

“There’s a world of film­mak­ers across Europe cre­at­ing films that have de­lighted au­di­ences across the world with their com­edy, tragedy, in­tel­li­gence and beauty. And we’re bring­ing some of the best of these films to­gether from across the last decade to Kilkenny in Novem­ber,” she writes. Rather im­pres­sively, the event will screen more than 40 films in just one week.

Among the gems turn­ing up we find Cris­tian Mingiu’s great 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, Su­sanne Bier’s In a Bet­ter World and To­mas Al­dred­son’s Let the Right One In. Films play­ing that never re­ceived a for­mal re­lease in­clude Jiri Men­zel’s I Served the King of Eng­land and Sara Johnsen’s Up­per­dog.

The in­au­gu­ral An­gela Awards – named for the late An­gela Cook, a much-missed sup­porter of the arts – will cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of ac­tors, di­rec­tors, writ­ers, com­posers and cin­e­matog­ra­phers throughout Europe. The awards will also fea­ture some well-known Ir­ish ac­tors and di­rec­tors who will be in Kilkenny for the night.
