Music fans will have plenty to look forward to at this year’s Audi Dublin International Film Festival with a number of special events exploring the dynamic relationship between film and music. Oscar-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland, 2004) will present a masterclass about film music composition, while film preservationist Serge Bromberg will look to transport audiences back to the age of silent film with a new live music score to accompany a screening of Buster Keaton’s movies.
Two music documentaries will also be screened as part of the Festival; one celebrating jazz legend Miles Davis in Miles Ahead, and B-Movie, a film exploring Berlin’s vibrant post-punk underground scene. IN addition to this, acclaimed musician and performance artist Laurie Anderson’s film Heart of a Dog – described as a personal essay about love and loss featuring her beloved dog Lolabelle and aided by original compositions – will also excite many music enthusiasts.
The Audi Dublin International Film Festival open on Thursday, February 18th with the Sundance smash-hit Sing Street, and runs until Sunday, February 28th with a screening of Paddy Breathnach’s Viva closing events.
