Cawley NeaTBWA gave a new twist to the directors chairs’ theme for this year’s Jameson Dublin International Film Festival TV commercial using London animation firm Blink Productions

Ondine, Neil Jordan’s new movie starring Colin Farrell as a Cork fisherman who catches a mysterious young woman in his net, opens the eight Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in Savoy 1 at 7.30pm next Thursday (February 18th). The Dublin actor is expected to attend the screening.

Irishman Ken Wardrop’s feature debut, His & Hers, is on at the Screen 1 the next day. The film presents frank and funny interviews with women from the midlands about their men. Michael Moore’s docudrama Capitalism: A Love Story is on at the Savoy on the Saturday.

Highlights from the following week’s line-up include Atom Egoyan’s erotic drama Chloe, starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore;  Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s crime novel Shutter Island and Woody Allen’s Whatever Works.

The ten-day festival includes a tribute to Michael Dwyer, festival founder and Irish Times film correspondent who died recently, aged 58. The series includes Oliver Stone’s Salvador, Stephen Frears’s My Beautiful Laundrette and the Italian epic The Best of Youth.
