Adaptation Film Festival, On My Radar

October 2, 2011

On My Radar 4 is just around the corner – in Dromahair, two weeks from now, check it out, Adaptation 2011 – Le Carré!

Adaptation – the only festival of cinema and literature in Ireland or Britain takes place for its sixth year in Dromahair. This year they celebrate the work of John Le Carré, showing a retrospective of rare television, feature films and talks by writers and directors. All screenings take place at Cinema North Wests’ 100-seater Cinemobile situated on the main square of Dromahair, County Leitrim. The schedule for the weekend is online now, looking very good to me, a selection of gems on the movie front there, a special reading, a workshop on the subject, a talk about The Trouble with Adaptation and a panel of expat Germans living in Leitrim and Sligo to relate their experiences of growing up in both East and West Germany. Although having no first hand experience in all that, the whole Berlin Wall and cold war thing is rather fascinating to me;  and just watching THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD we probably still don’t know half of it! Check out the programme for Friday the 14th of October till Sunday the 16th, you’ll be impressed, as there is still a lot more than highlighted here…

or on their official website here

I like the first, the Cinema North Wests’ one a bit better, but see for yourselves…

Interested? As in, you’re going along? See ya there!
