Friday 29 + Saturday 30 January 2016.
Revolutions is the exciting theme of this year’s festival. It’s a theme that not only takes account of this year’s celebration of the centenary of the Easter Rising and the Irish War of Independence but also the recently successful marriage equality referendum in which the people of Ireland voted to extend equal rights to its GLBT citizens, but also refers to a state of revolt and change that characterises many important past and current events outside of Ireland.
Friday programme (3:00 pm – 10:15 pm): Carmelite Centre, Aungier St. Dublin 2.
Saturday programme (10:00 am – 5:00 pm): Collins Barracks, Benburb St. Dublin 7.
The keynote speaker on Friday is Trinity College’s Ruth Barton and on Saturday the organisers are delighted to announce the screening of The Queen of Ireland (2015) and the attendance of both director Conor Horgan and the revolutionary queen of Ireland herself and star of the film Rory O’Neill / Panti Bliss for Q&A post-screening.
All are welcome and each film is followed by a lively discussion of the psychoanalytic themes raised. We hope to see you there. Registration will be available on each day of the event although we encourage you to preregister at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
