This year we are particularly proud to support an exciting new addition to the festival programme – The Immersive Stories: Conference & Exhibition. The two-day seminar provides a unique opportunity for national and international experts in the digital and virtual reality sectors to come together to share insights, explore future trends and inspire the next generation of digital creatives.”

Galas and Special Presentations

The Opening Gala of ADIFF 2018 will be the Irish Premiere of Black 47, the most hotly-anticipated Irish film of the year. Lance Daly directs this gripping, pulsating thriller, set during Ireland’s Great Famine, featuring an all-star cast. Lance Daly and a selection of the cast including James Frecheville, Barry Keoghan, Moe Dunford and Stephen Rea will attend.

One of Hollywood’s finest, Bill Pullman, attends the festival for the Irish Premiere of his new Western The Ballad of Lefty Brown, a superb addition to his distinguished body of cinematic work stretching back three decades.

Amongst cinema’s most distinctive and admired filmmakers, Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Morvern Callar) visits the festival for the Special Presentation of her Cannes prize-winning thriller You Were Never Really Here. Irish-Spanish co-production, Muse, is a seductive supernatural thriller that was both set and shot in Dublin and will screen as a Special Presentation.

Irish director Nora Twomey will attend the long-awaited Irish Premiere Special Presentation of her animated drama The Breadwinner, which has been Oscar-nominated in the Best Animated Feature category for 2018. From Kilkenny’s Cartoon Saloon, this is a powerful story of an Afghan girl passing as a boy to work to help her family survive.

Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave will receive one of the two 2018 ADIFF Volta Awards, the festival’s most prestigious award, for her lifetime of achievement in cinema at the Irish Premiere of her passionate new documentary on the refugee crisis, Sea Sorrow. Her co-director and son Carlo Nero will also attend.

Paul Schrader will also receive a Volta Award and is honoured for his extensive work as a director and screenwriter. Schrader’s acclaimed new film First Reformed starring Ethan Hawke will receive its Gala Irish Premiere at the festival. Schrader will also give an in-depth Public Talk and, as this year’s Guest Curator, will introduce three classic films that have inspired his work.

The Opening Film of the Fantastic Flix programme for young people, supported by Cheestrings, is Andrew Haigh’s Lean On Pete (15A), a moving drama featuring Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny and an award-winning performance from Charlie Plummer.

Rounding off the festival with the ultimate in escapist cinema, ADIFF 2018’s Closing Gala is C’est La Vie. This funny, irreverent and charming French film is Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano’s follow-up to their box-office sensation The Intouchables and will leave festival audiences smiling until 2019.

Guest Highlights

The World Premiere of The Delinquent Season sees one of Ireland’s finest playwrights and screenwriters, Mark O’Rowe, make his debut as film director with a tale of two seemingly successful Dublin couples facing unexpected challenges.

Director Jean-François Hensgens and armed robber-turned-filmmaker François Troukens attend the festival with their slick heist thriller Tueurs/Above the Law. Matthias Heeder attends the screening of Pre-Crime, a documentary exploring ‘protective policing’, a sci-fi staple that is becoming all too real.

Silent Cinema

ADIFF has teamed up with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival to give screenings of two silent films which will be accompanied by live music. Behind the Door (1919), controversial upon its release for the violence it portrays, will be screened accompanied by live piano, played by Stephen Horne. Meanwhile, amusing French classic comedy, The Italian Straw Hat (The Horse Ate the Hat) (1928) will be accompanied by a live quartet of Günter A. Buchwald, Matthew Jacobson, Nick Roth and Derek Whyte.


Cedric Gibbons

Dublin-born Cedric Gibbons was the most successful art director in the history of cinema, responsible for MGM’s reputation as Hollywood’s number one ‘dream factory’. ADIFF 2018 celebrates his work with the Cedric Gibbons Retrospective featuring The Big Parade, Dinner at Eight, Grand Hotel and An American in Paris, as well as a one-day conference at NCAD Gallery from 2ndMarch. An exhibition will run at the NCAD Gallery 2nd-31st March.

The festival’s highest honour, the Volta Award, will be presented to Vanessa Redgrave and Paul Schrader. Filmgoers themselves will select their favourite film of the Festival with the AUDI-ence award. The winning filmmakers will be flown to the Berlin International Film Festival in 2019 where they will enjoy a true VIP Audi experience.

The Dublin Film Critics’ Circle Jury selects the best of the festival in all major categories including their own Michael Dwyer Discovery Award and the George Byrne Maverick Award at the DFCC Awards Ceremony.

Special Events, Shorts and the Surprise Film

One of the most popular and revered slots in the programme, the identity of the Just Eat Surprise Film is a tightly-guarded secret known only to the Festival Director but it always rewards the bold and the brave.

The festival has expanded its ADIFF Shorts selections to four programmes of the best short films from Ireland and around the world, featuring both established talent and the next generation of filmmakers cutting their teeth.


The meeting point between audiences, critics, talent and industry that the festival provides extends far beyond the cinema screen in the ADIFF Special Events. This year’s events will include a Writers’ Masterclass with Laurence Coriat and an Audiences Panel with Ben Luxford, Head of UK Audiences at the British Film Institute.
