The Cork Film Festival, Ireland’s oldest film festival, has announced the program of its 61st edition, which will take place on November 11-20.
Over 15,000 people from all over the world are expected to attend what looks to be a stellar edition of the festival. Its program will present more than 70 feature films, including Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women, which was very recently awarded Best Film at the BFI London Film Festival, and the closing film, Amma Asante’s A United Kingdom, starring David Oyelowo and Rosemund Pike.
As in previous editions of the festival, there will be a strong program of documentary features; 52 of them in total. One of them, Dancer by Steven Cantor about bad-boy ballet star Sergei Polunin, will open the festival on November 11.
The Cork Film Festival will continue to nurture home-grown talent by screening 39 Irish short films, with over a quarter of them from Cork. In addition, over 100 shorts from all over the world will be screened throughout the festival.
