Ireland is this year’s partner country at the Croatian Motovun Festival. A sidebar programme featuring 13 prominent Irish features, documentaries and shorts from the last three years will be screened at the festival which will take place from Jul 25th-29th. The Irish line-up was chosen by former CEO of the Irish Film Board Simon Perry.
Every year Motovun teams up with a partner country to give a side programme at the festival which focuses on the partner country’s film, music and culture. The ‘Made in Ireland’ programme aims to show a wide diversity of Irish film including three Irish documentaries (Risteard O’Domhnaill’s ‘The Pipe’, Frank Berry’s ‘Ballymun Lullaby’, Maya Derrington’s ‘Pyjama Girls’), animation (Tomm Moore’s ‘The Secret of Kells’), short film (Joanna Rubin Dranger ‘Miss Remarkable and her Career) and features including Alexandra McGuiness’ ‘Lotus Eaters’, Margaret Corkery’s ‘Eamon’ and Brendan Muldowney’s ‘Savage’.
Irish films competing in the main Motovun programme include Ian Power’s ‘The Runway’, Jerzy Skolimowski’s ‘Essential Killing’, John Michael McDonagh’s ‘The Guard’ and Ian Palmer’s ‘Knuckle’.
The 12th Motovun Film Festival will take place from July 25th-29th in the medieval town of Motovun, Croatia. For more information or to view the full programme visit Motovun Film Festival.
