Doc here …

This year’s IFI Documentary Festival is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a jam-packed programme of killer factual flicks from September 23-27. Expect a whopping 14 feature length documentaries, one world premiere and ten Irish premieres. It will also welcome a host of special guest filmmakers from Ireland and abroad, alongside a series of special events; and will continue on the success of last year’s Industry Day, in partnership with Bord Scann?n na h?ireann/the Irish Film Board, which will give filmmakers the opportunity to network with leaders in the field.

We’re marking our diaries for?gala opening night film Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans; a look at US race and gun violence in 3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets;?Speed Sisters, which looks at the West Bank speed car racing scene that has flourished in recent years and at an all-female racing team who are breaking through in this male-dominated sport; the world premiere of Dearbhla Glynn’s War in Eastern Congo, which highlights the community impact of the devastating ongoing conflict which has claimed the lives of 6 million and seen the use of rape as a widespread weapon of war; the story of Orion, an impersonator who fuelled rumours that Elvis never died;?David Aronowitsch’s I Am Dublin, which focuses on Ahmed, an asylum seeker trying to build a life in Sweden but who is hamstrung by the EU law known as the Dublin Regulation; Lo?c Jourdain’s A Turning Tide in the Life of Man, which follows island fisherman John O’Brien’s campaign to try to regain his ancestral right to fish the seas around Donegal; A Syrian Love Story by Sean McAllister; a newly rediscovered survey of pre-boom Dublin – Bargaintown; and a panel discussion on women in film and television.
