When their mother descends into madness, siblings Gretel and Hansel must fend for themselves in the dark and unforgiving woods.

Invited inside by the seemingly friendly owner, the children soon suspect that her generous but mysterious behaviour is part of a sinister plan to do them harm.

The film is directed by Oz Perkins, and produced by Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Dan Kagan, with a screenplay by Rob Hayes, and executive produced by Macdara Kelleher and Sandra Lee-Ying. Sophia Lillis and Sam Leakey portray the title characters, alongside Charles Babalola, Jessica De Gouw, and Alice Krige. 

"If Gretel & Hansel doesn't turn out to be one of the year's genre highlights, it will be a very good year at the movies indeed." Charles Bramesco, Polygon

When Ola’s father dies on a building site in Ireland, she must travel there to bring his remains back to Poland.

Money is the only thing that connected him to Ola, with the promise to buy a car for her eighteenth birthday. Dealing with foreign bureaucracy and her father’s acquaintances in her own street-smart way, Ola learns her biggest dream wasn’t a car, but getting to know who her father really was.

"An intimate, darkly-funny story about that moment when a smart teenager finally figures out its not all about her," Roger Moore, Movie Nation.

Wolfwalkers (2.15pm Thursday June 10th)

In Attendance: Producer Paul Young, Writer Will Collins and Second Unit Director Mark Mullery.

In a time of superstition and magic, when wolves are seen as demonic and nature an evil to be tamed, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn, comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack. But when Robyn saves a wild native girl, Mebh, their friendship leads her to discover the world of the Wolfwalkers and transform her into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.

"Here is an animated film that finds new beauty in ancient traditions; a film that fights back against the temptation to surrender what little magic this world still has left, and fulfills Cartoon Saloon's promise along the way," David Ehrlich, indieWire.
