A unique opportunity to catch some of the most popular European films that are not found at the multiplex. If you are looking for provocative, funny and accessible films then SUBTITLE is for you!
Each November, SUBTITLE offers audiences a unique opportunity to catch some of the most popular European films, many of which have never been screened theatrically in Ireland. Presenting provocative, funny, accessible and smart European films alongside a roll call of filmmakers and stars, the Festival will make you see cinema in a whole new way. The inaugural SUBTITLE Festival in 2012 proved a huge success, showcasing some of the finest films and most talented filmmakers from across Europe in the magnificent city of Kilkenny.
2014 will see Kilkenny host the third edition of SUBTITLE as the festival goes from strength to strength. Speaking about the programme, Artistic Director Richard Cook said: 'Many of the brilliant films and TV shows that have captivated us for the last few years have come from Europe – The Killing, Borgen and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, to name a few. Many of these have also gone on to be remade by Hollywood studios.
SUBTITLE gives audiences the chance to see where all this filmmaking talent comes from.' The Angela European Film Awards are held on the closing night of the festival. Past recipients have included Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and The Hobbit's Mikael Persbrandt. Other guests have included director Jim Sheridan and actors Robert Sheehan and Amy Huberman.
