Now going into its 10th year, the Underground Cinema Film Festival has once again created a new programme showcasing adventurous independent filmmaking, in which boundaries are explored, pushed and often broken. The creative means employed in these films will take audiences on a wild ride towards the future of cinematic storytelling. This year’s festival runs Saturday, August 30th to Sunday, September 1st.
Hosted in the Royal Marine Hotel in the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire in County Dublin, the festival transforms Dun Laoghaire, the home town of the National Film School in to a hub of creativity and film appreciation. Over the past ten years the festival has screened just over 1,000 films from 40 countries from all over the world.
Another addition to this year’s festival is the introduction of the Underground Cinema Comic Con. The con will take place on the final day of the festival from 12pm to 6pm. With over 20 vendors at the con this year it promises to be an incredible day out for all the family. Best of all, its free. Members of the 501st Ireland and Rebel will be holding a Recruitment day at the con as well. You’re invited to learn more about the 501st and the Rebel Legion and how to join, where to get your own stormtrooper armour and hang out with some of the finest costumed Star Wars characters in the Galaxy. Kids and grandparents friendly! Guaranteed no force choking.
August 30 (Friday) 8:00 PM - September 1 (Sunday) 10:00 PM
