DIRECTOR’S INTRODUCTION Welcome to the 2012 Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary with an extensive programme of both indigenous and international cinema and a top-notch guest list to accompany the premieres, workshops, masterclasses and special events we’ve planned especially for you. Amongst our celebrations, we have expanded our touring programme, which will include the classic Buster Keaton silent film Sherlock Jr., while with ‘Picture House’ we bring the festival into Dublin care centres for the first time. We will also host ‘Stargazing in Dublin’, a special gallery exhibition celebrating the film stars who have visited Dublin over the years. Many of you will know by now that Al Pacino will attend the festival to share his new film with Dublin audiences. He will be joined by actress Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret), Martin Sheen (Stella Days), Whit Stillman (Damsels in Distress) and Agnieszka Holland (In Darkness) amongst many, many more.

A very special treat on offer is a chance to see Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages, accompanied by the Matti Bye ensemble. International cinema is well represented this year, with a particularly fine crop of new films from Scandinavia, Russia and Germany, while our Irish programme is packed with new films, including Pat Collins’ Silence, Ian Fitzgibbon’s Death of a Superhero and Emile Dinneen’s Nightdancers. Our recent focus on documentary continues with wonderful films such as Crulic - the Path to Beyond by Anca Damian and Werner Herzog’s Into the Abyss. Out of the Past, our eclectic archive programme, includes Cocteau’s Orphée, Schatzberg’s Puzzle of a Downfall Child and, for its 70th birthday, a rare screening of Walt Disney’s masterpiece Bambi.

From Cary Grant to Kevin Spacey, Dublin has played host to more than its fair share of film talent over the years, and this year, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, we’re delighted to present Stargazing in Dublin, an exhibition of over 100 photos celebrating sixty years of international film stars in the city. Curated by Sheamus Smith, who was CEO of Ardmore Studios (1975-82) and Ireland’s Film Classifier (1986-2003), the exhibition is located in the heart of the city, on the top floor of the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and runs throughout February. Drawing on a wide range of sources including the RTÉ Stills Library, Lensmen Press & PR Agency, Maxwell Photography, The Irish Times, the Colman Doyle Collection at the National Gallery and JDIFF itself, Stargazing in Dublin celebrates the moments when a little bit of Hollywood stardust was sprinkled over the capital.

“Since my earliest childhood memories of the cinema in my home town of Ballaghaderreen, the big screen has played a major part in my life and career. I was very pleased when Gráinne Humphreys, the Director of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, invited me to curate an exhibition showing photographs of movie stars who visited the capital over the years. As a young press photographer in 1950s Dublin, I had photographed important international stars such as Danny Kaye, Maureen O’Hara, Cary Grant, Joan Crawford, James Cagney and Rod Steiger. Assembling this exhibition from many sources has been a challenging but enjoyable experience. My sincere thanks to those who so generously assisted me in this undertaking.” Sheamus Smith
