The Bloomsday Film Festival has announced their programme of events from Monday 12th to Sunday 18th June including a number of very special screenings in association with the Irish Film Institute.

The Bloomsday Film Festival is run in partnership with the Bloomsday Festival and the James Joyce Centre, offering a unique festival experience blending film and literature in celebration of James Joyce’s relationship with cinema and the city of Dublin.

Festivities kick off on Monday 12th June with an Opening Gala event in the stunning period surroundings of the James Joyce Centre on North Great George’s Street with a Writers’ Tears Whiskey drinks reception.

On Tuesday 13th June, the festival will present A Celebration of the Life and Literary Legacy of the Poet Niall McDevitt  in association with the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith. Filmmaker Sé Merry Doyle will introduce two award-winning films directed by himself and written and starring Niall McDevitt. WB Yeats - The Battle of Blythe Road and Joyce: the Reluctant Groom

In celebration of W.B Yeats’ Birthday, a selection of poetry and literary short films from Ireland and around the world will screen throughout the afternoon of the 13th at the James Joyce Centre.

Alive Alive O - A Requiem For Dublin will screen On Wednesday, June 14th, in the IFI.

Sé Merry Doyle will introduce his homage to Dublin’s street traders which chronicles how their age-old culture becomes increasingly overshadowed by the closing of marketplaces, the scourge of heroin, and the mutation of a city into a soulless space.

In the James Joyce Centre that afternoon a selection of experimental short films will be screened.

Poet Eva H.D. will join Charlie Kaufman (Synecdoche, New York, I’m Thinking of Ending Things) in Dublin for a screening of his short film Jackals & Fireflies on June 15th in the IFI. The short was shot entirely on a Samsung Galaxy by cinematographer Chayse Irvin, and will be followed by a Q&A. Eva H.D.’s poem Bonedog was used in I’m Thinking of Ending Things.

The post-screening conversation with Eva H.D. and Charlie Kaufman will be hosted by Sinéad Gleeson.

During the day on Thursday 15th June, Joycean shorts and Dublin Stories will be screened at the James Joyce Centre. 

The Bloomsday Film Festival Award Ceremony will take place at the IFI on Thursday evening where sponsor Writers’ Tears will present the award for Best Overall Short Film, a cash prize of €1000.

The festival culminates on Bloomsday, Friday 16th June with two screenings at the IFI.

In Translating Ulysses, Kawa Nemir undertakes a literary mission considered to be impossible: Translating James Joyce’s Ulysses into Kurdish. Filmmakers Aylin Kuryel and Fırat Yücel will be present for the screening.

To mark Charlie Kaufman’s visit to Dublin audiences will have a chance to see, for the first time, I'm Thinking of Ending Things, on the big screen. The film, which went directly to Netflix, will be followed by a Q&A with Kaufman hosted by Donald Clarke. 

As a special addition to the Bloomsday Festival Programme, North Circular, the multi-award winning documentary musical by Luke McManus will screen at the Lighthouse Cinema on Sunday 18th.

A selection of films screened at the festival will then be available to view online from Friday 18th until midnight Sunday 18th June.
