The 64th Cork Film Festival has begun.
With over 160 acclaimed national and international filmmakers and talent presenting their work all over the city from Thursday, November 7th until November 17th, more than 300 Irish and international features, documentaries, shorts and events will offer something to suit every taste.
This year, fans of the homegrown comedy The Young Offenders will be especially pleased: a special preview of the first two episodes of the second season of the show takes place in the city this Saturday, November 9th, 2019.
Starring Cork’s most famous export Roy Keane in a cameo role (the episode is inspired by Roddy Doyle’s The Van) an exclusive screening of the smash hit RTÉ and BBC show will begin at 4pm in The Cellar Theatre in the Mardyke Entertainment Complex on Sheare’s Street.
