Dingle International Film Festival is proud to announce in association with Studio Canal and Element Pictures. The EXPLOSIVE new film Free Fire is opening the festival with director of the film and special guest Ben Wheatley. It is promising to be a shotgun night! Tickets go on sale soon.

Set in Boston in 1978, an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Justine has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen and a gang led by Vernon and Ord, who are selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired during the handover, complete pandemonium ensues, with everyone at the scene suddenly thrust into a heart-stopping game of survival. Starring an unbelievable cast with Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley, Michael Smiley and Jack Reynor.

In May 2013, young Donal Walsh lost his cancer battle at 16 years of age.

This year’s theme is “Make Every Second Count”.  The competition culminates with an awards ceremony when the shortlisted movies are screened and the winners announced. Awards are presented to winning students who took part in the Live Life National Film Competition and the event is a celebration of life and love!  The short films produced as part of this competition are really excellent and very moving. The whole atmosphere at the event and with many young people present really proves life affirming. We anticipate about 1,500 attendees at this year’s event. Our 4th “Live Life Love” Day will be at the Brandon Conference Centre in Tralee on the 16th Feb  2017 (11am – 1pm) in honour of Donal –  an amazing teenager.

Closing date for entries: 31st January 2017
