ROMEOS & HOLD ON TIGHT

We are thrilled to present as our Opening Gala Film, Romeos’ not only a brilliant and hugely entertaining story, but also a film of great courage alongside Hold On Tight

Lukas has just turned 20 and he’s ready to get out and find some action. Launching himself into a new life in the big city he suddenly finds himself with a new circle of friends, among them the trashy and totally hot, Fabio, who exudes masculinity through every pore and embodies the kind of self-confidence that Lukas lacks.

The two begin to get closer, but Lukas has a huge secret that he has yet to share with Fabio – he was born a girl. Only his best girlfriend, Ine, knows what’s really going on and she’s starting to get tired of Lukas being such a lad.

Romeos touches a nerve in all of us. A sexy, crowd-pleasing drama that’s both comedic and serious at the same time, packed with fantastic characters and performances, it’s an incredibly well-made and inspiring film about how we’re all living double lives to one degree or another.

The winning entry, Hold on Tight from director Anna Rodgers and producer ZlataFilipovic will have its world premiere as part of our Opening Night Gala at The Screen Cinema on Thursday, July 28 at 8:30pm.

The film is a gorgeous, intimate documentary about displays of affection between same- sex couples. Holding hands or kissing in public isn’t for everyone. When it comes to same-sex relationships, showing your love outside of the home is sometimes a complicated personal choice. Yet, for most people, being affectionate beyond the hall door isn’t intended as a political statement – it’s an expression of love. Beautifully shot by award wining cinematographer Kate McCullough, the film transports us from a private world outside into the streets, bars, trains and parks in which Irish lesbian and gay couples live their daily lives.

German with English subtitles.

Join us before the screening at 6.30pm for a special cocktail reception at Lafayette on D’Olier Street (just around the corner from The Screen Cinema), and afterwards at the Festival Club upstairs at The Project Arts Centre.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
