Kilruddery Film Festival

For film buffs looking for something a little different (and who happen to be withing striking distance of Kilruddey House in Ireland) this weekend sees the second staging of the Killruddery Film Festival 'Celebrating Lost, Overlooked & Forgotten Cinema'.

It looks like a wonderful event with highlights including John Boorman introducing 50's nuclear thriller "Seven Days to Noon" and Rebecca Miller introducing Sanjit Ray's "Goddess/Devi" which looks absolutely amazing. Great to see such luminaries supporting the event.

Goddess/Devi, Sanjit Ray, 1960

The festival which has discussions on Film art, Foley workshops for kids and is all hosted in the majestic settings of Killruddery House and Gardens looks to be a real gem.

Seeya there...

There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well Information Information Information
