The British and Irish Film Season, now in its fourth year, has moved up a gear with a string of new additions to the festival programme.

This year’s line up of feature films at the British and Irish Film Season includes some very promising titles, many culled from the Edinburgh Film Festival and the Galway Film Fleadh.

These include the long-awaited Neil Jordan vampire drama Byzantium, starring Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arteton and Sam Riley; Shan Khan’s London thriller Honour about a family ordering the honour killing of their daughter; Irish recession comedy Life’s A Breeze; family drama Run & Jump; romantic film industry comedy The Callback Queen; dramatic urban revenge thriller UWANTMETOKILLHIM?; and real life motor sports drama Rush (photo).

The season also provides a premier for Irish-Luxembourg production Love Eternal, Brendan Muldowney’s adaptation of Kei Oishi novel In Love With The Dead. Co-produced by Luxembourg’s Red Lion, the film features local actors Tom Leick, Janice Allgrove, Linda Woodhall and Jill Kibbey.

But the programme also includes documentaries in the shape of Ken Loach’s acclaimed The Spirit of ’45–a nostalgic look at the post-war socialist ideal that spread through Britain–and The Great Hip-Hop Hoax, a docudrama based on a pair of Scottish chancers who manage top persuade the music industry that they are the next big thing to emerge from the Californian hip-hop scene.

In addition, BIFS is hosting its first short-film evening featuring a number of films made in Ireland. There is also a competition for young aspiring journalists to write a review of any film at the festival.

A BIFS dinner, in association with the Whisky Club Luxembourg, is being held at the Sofitel Kirchberg prior to the screening of UWANTMETOKILLHIM?–guests from the film will be present at the dinner.

Entry to screenings at BIFS are at the standard price, but keen film goers can buy a special BIFS pass that grants access to five screenings of their choice for just 25 euro from the festival’s dedicated website.
