This year’s line-up includes guest appearances from Vanessa Redgrave, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor, Ross Noble, Kerry Fox, Aidan Gillen and Anna Friel.
The partnership with the Audi Dublin International Film Festival 2017 will see the Ireland edition of The Times and The Sunday Times featured across all of the Festival’s online and offline marketing channels. In addition, complimentary copies of The Sunday Times will also be gifted to audience members on Sunday February 19th and Sunday February 26th.
Subscribers to the Ireland edition of The Times and The Sunday Times will also be offered the chance to win a VIP prize of two tickets to the Opening and Closing Night Red Carpet Gala, including an overnight stay at Dublin’s Merrion Hotel.
According to Catherine Newman, chief marketing officer of The Times and Sunday Times: “This partnership between the Ireland edition of The Times, The Sunday Times and the Audi Dublin International Film Festival is a very natural fit. The festival is a fantastic platform for fresh and innovative ideas amongst Irish and international film-makers and our readers enjoy the extensive coverage of the arts, particularly film, which features in our titles. It’s wonderful to be able to join these two elements together and offer a range of perspectives on what’s happening in the world of film.’
