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

We have more news on shenani­gans at the Cork Film Fes­ti­val. Hav­ing dis­pensed with the ser­vices of Mick Han­ni­gan as CEO ear­lier this year, the or­gan­is­ers of that ven­er­a­ble event have ap­pointed James Mul­lighan, for­mer di­rec­tor of the Ed­in­burgh Film Fes­ti­val, to lead the event for­ward as Creative Di­rec­tor. Mul­lighan has also served on the En­coun­ters Short Film and An­i­ma­tion, Sh­effield DocFest and the Lon­don Short Film fes­ti­vals. We’re de­lighted that some­one of such in­ter­na­tional cal­i­bre has come on board to help us re-imag­ine and re­fresh the Cork Film Fes­ti­val,” said Cork Film Fes­ti­val Chair­man Denis McSweeney.

“What’s more, James’s fan­tas­tic re­la­tion­ship with dis­trib­u­tors and in­de­pen­dent film-mak­ers across the globe will open a win­dow of op­por­tu­nity for the fes­ti­val.”
