Viewfinder is a series of vibrant presentations by talented Irish filmmakers on a movie that has had an impact on their life and influenced their work.

Each speaker will analyse particular aspects of the film and reveal the layers of what makes them stand out. These talks are perfect for writers, directors, actors, etc. and all movie lovers who want to get a director’s perspective on film.

20th May – Martin Duffy will breakdown and smash open Michael Douglas’ descent into vigilantism in Joel Schumacher’s Falling Down (20th May).
