Killruddery Film Festival 2013

Sept 27th – 29th 2013

The Killruddery Film Festival is a rare thing among film festivals.  It shows classic and silent films accompanied by music and all in the wonderful surroundings of Killruddery House and Gardens here in Bray.

“It’s for film lovers who want to see something new, but don’t want to compromise on excellent story telling, for music lovers who want to see musicians accompany films in a way that is almost magical in the skill it requires, for anyone who wants to be told a really great story and as ever there is a kids friendly section to our programme.”

The Trail of ’98 is a silent epic telling the story of the Klondike gold rush in 1898. It was an extremely difficult shoot and while reports vary, there is some agreement that there were casualties during shooting. This will be shown in The Orangery under the cover of darkness so bring along a blanket for your knees. There will be live muiscial accompaniment from Stephen Horne.
