Screens in IFI from 18th – 31st July

Following on from its huge success on the festival circuit the animated short film Coda will screen ahead of the wonderful documentary Finding Vivian Maier in the IFI from today until the 31st July.

Funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB), RTÉ and the Arts Council through the Frameworks scheme, Coda has garnered critical acclaim on an international stage winning awards at major festivals including the Best Animated Short Film award at the prestigious South by Southwest Festival in March, Most Creative Short at the Edinburgh Short Film Festival and the Grand Prize at Fest Anca.

Directed by Alan Holly and produced by Ciarán Deeney, the film voiced by Brian Gleeson (Standby, The Stag, Love/Hate) and Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind that Shakes the Barley) tells the story of a lost soul who stumbles drunkenly through the city. In a park, death finds him and shows him many things.

Finding Vivian Maier which traces the life of photographer Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers.

Catch Coda in the IFI from 18th – 31st July.
