The Virgin Dublin International Film Festival kicks off this Wednesday, with 125 events taking place across 12 days. Now in its 17th year, the festival spans local and international feature films, short films and documentaries, a young people’s programme and a series of talks featuring industry insiders. Beyond the moving image, meanwhile, is a photographic exhibition that seeks to spotlight the wealth of ability both in front of and behind the scenes of Irish cinema.
