The theme for Festival 2018 is Home and is the inspiration for the artistic programme that includes a unique film commission project (‘Pathway’), street-theatre, talks, walks, spoken word, literature, music, Irish language, visual art and more.

Radio presenter, photographer and film maker Donal Dineen was tasked with the opportunity to create ‘Pathways: Irish Routes to the Art of the Matter’ in response to the theme of Home. A documentary about successful Irish creatives who are making it abroad, it will uncover the story of how they got there and look at where and when the seeds for their success were sown.

Fans of vintage Hollywood will have the chance to enjoy Screening and Live Score Performance: ‘The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ in St. Patrick’s Cathedral on March 15th. Directed by Irishman Rex Ingram, the first major Irish film director and once described as “the world’s greatest director”, this rare screening of the 1921 American silent epic war film features a new score by renowned composers Matthew Nolan and Barry Adamson which they will perform live on the night accompanied by Seán Mac Erlaine, Adrian Crowley and Kevin Murphy. Barry has previously worked with David Lynch, Oliver Stone and Nick Cave.

As part of the Where We Live programme of events,City on Screen’ is a series of extraordinary film screenings, which examine and question our sense of home, quietly and riotously throwing into question our past, present and future. Each one of these cult films will be introduced by one of the key artists involved. Screenings include funny, downbeat, bleak and beautiful comedy ‘Adam & Paul’, which has achieved cult status among its devoted fans; ‘Seaview’, which documents intensely close conversations with the residents of Mosney Direct Provision Centre, revealing their individual stories, from the epic to the everyday; and ‘Notes On Rave In Dublin’, a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town and brilliantly nostalgic look back at 90s Dublin cloaked in a vivid sense of hedonism.

Tickets for ‘Screening and Live Score Performance: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ (€24.00) are available from www.stpatricksfestival.ie
