Dingle International Film Festival 2014
12 March 2014
Springtime brings with it some bright flowers and colours, and also some of the arts to the wonderful Dingle Peninsula with the start of the Dingle International Film Festival 2014.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, an Irish Language community with a wonderful tradition of Film, Music and Literature, Dingle has been cited as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’ by the National Geographic. Dingle is home to many filmmakers, one of Ireland’s only independent cinemas (The Phoenix), is a known film location and a major tourist destination.
Now in its 7th year, the Dingle International Film Festival is located on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, which was once cited as ‘the most beautiful place on Earth’ by National Geographic. The Festival is home to The Gregory Peck Award and recipients have included 2-time Oscar nominated Stephen Frears, 6-time Oscar nominated Jim Sheridan, and Golden Globe winner Gabriel Byrne. Others guests who have participated in the festival include actor Cillian Murphy; 2-time Oscar nominated director Sir Alan Parker, inventor of the Stedicam Garrett Brown, 2-time Oscar winner and sound artist Tom Johnson, 2-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple, producer Ned Dowd, and Oscar nominated actresses Sarah Miles and Saoirse Ronan.
Dingle Benners Hotel will be right in the heart of the festival over the course of March 14th to 17th and will be hosting the closing festivities in the hotel. If you are looking for something to do or for somewhere to go that you are guaranteed to be entertained, then Dingle is your place!
