The IFI Celebrates 25th Anniversary
15 Sep 2017 : Nathan Griffin
Irish Film Institute
President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, will attend the Gala Cine-concert in celebration of the IFI’s 25th anniversary Saturday, September 16th.

The event coincides with the IFI’s annual Open Day, which includes a day-long schedule of free public screenings, events, and tours.

The Gala Cine-concert of the 1926 classic The Cohens and Kellys, is to be formally launched by President of Ireland and Patron of the IFI, Michael D. Higgins. The Gala Cine-concert will feature live musical accompaniment.

Tickets for each film will be distributed in the IFI Foyer one hour before each screening starts. Limited tickets for the Gala Cine-concert will be available from the IFI at 18.30. All screenings are strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, so visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment!

2017’s Open Day will include a Gala Cine-concert of The Cohens and Kellys (1926), a lively comedy of feuding Irish and Jewish families in 1920s New York. Hilarious, warm, and timelessly entertaining, the film will be accompanied by live music from award-winning accordionist Dermot Dunne and saxophonist Nick Roth, Artistic Director of the Yurodny Ensemble.

Open Day visitors will also have a chance to learn about the incredible preservation, digitisation and restoration work of the IFI Irish Film Archive team at the ‘Ask the Archivists’ desk.
