Festival: Picture House returns for JDIFF 2015

Jameson Dublin International Film Festival has announced that this year’s Picture House will host an amazing selection of Irish and International shorts as part of the 2015 event.

The programme has been running for four years and Academy РAward winner Brenda Fricker has been patron since its second year. Picture House has been an integral part of the festival, bringing the magic of cinema to people who would otherwise be unable to take part. Over the years JDIFF have organised screenings in an array of venues from ranging from hospitals to prisons. In 2012 they brought the initiative to 10 care centre’s throughout Dublin.

[quote style=’1′ title=’Brenda Fricker’]Picture House is… hands down… one of the brightest things about this festival. I‚Äôve seen it make the people we bring it to laugh, cry and remember. It engages them in a get together otherwise beyond their reach. I am complimented to be a close part of something that is so vital to a marginalised segment of our society[/quote]

This year Picture House will screen an eclectic selection of international and Irish shorts including Céad Ghrá, Jordanne, An Ode to Love, Big Bird, Rockmount, How I Didn’t Become a Piano Teacher, and this year’s Oscar nominated short Boogaloo & Graham.
