There’s nothing quite like a summer film festival to give you a taste of the world and the cinema.
From the sheer number of screens to the sheer diversity of film formats and formats to the diverse array of directors and actors on offer, it’s a festival that has given Ireland a lot to look forward to in the coming months.
But this year’s festival will be a bit different to last year’s.
It’s been announced that Irish Summer Movie Festival will be going into its 10th year this year, with some films hitting the screens for the first time.
The first film in the series, The Little Mermaid, will hit cinemas on July 14th.
The film stars Emma Watson as Ariel, and is directed by Emma Stone, who won an Academy Award for her performance in Frozen.
There are also several films coming to the screens this year including The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit (A New Dawn) and The Jungle Book.
There will also be three new films being shown on Saturday night.
The Little Mermaid will hit theatres in the UK on July 8th.
It stars Emma Stone as Ariel and director Simon Barrett has a track record of making a splash with the likes of Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Hobbit.
There’s also another film in this year that has a strong pedigree, The Jungle Movie.
It is an adaptation of the Jungle Book book series, but with some changes.
It follows the adventures of Princess Jasmine (Kirsten Dunst) and her prince Peanut (Josh Gad).
The film will be shown at 9:00pm on Saturday, July 8.
The Jungle Book will hit screens on July 21st.
It starred Oscar winner Josh Brolin as the titular prince, Ben Affleck as the wise lion and Emma Watson in her first role as a lead.
There is a second film coming to screens on August 10th, which will also feature Ben Affckle as the prince.
There are two films coming out in Ireland this year: a drama about the history of the Irish famine, The Cane Tree, and a comedy based on a story from the Irish Civil War, My Father’s House.
Both films are on sale on DVD for €12.99.
A couple of films are coming out this year as well.
The Little Red Riding Hood and The Adventures of Tintin both hit screens in the Irish cinemas.
There have been rumours that these films are in the pipeline for a summer release, but there are no details at the moment.
The Cone Tree is a tale of Tine, a young orphan from an Irish boarding school who is sent to live with a local family in France.
Her adventures begin when she is given a horse by a kindly man, but it soon becomes apparent that the boy who owns the horse is her uncle, Gaston.
She also learns that Gaston has a daughter, who is named Snow White.
The two women are left to fend for themselves after the arrival of Gaston’s daughter, Princess Elsa.
The films will hit Irish cinemos on July 30th.
The Adventures of the Tintins will hit Ireland’s screens on September 11th.
There has been speculation that this will be an adaptation, but so far, there has been no confirmation.
There also are a few films coming from the series coming to Irish cinemases this year.
The Little Red Riding Hood and the Adventures of The Little Princess both hit Irish screens on October 18th.
Both feature some of the most memorable characters from the Little Red Rooster series.
The stories are told from a young girl’s point of view, as she goes from a sheltered childhood to discovering the world.
It will be the first film to be released in Ireland in more than a decade.
The films will also go on sale in the US on October 25th.
These films will be released on DVD in the same format as the other films, and they are in a similar vein to The Little White Rabbit and The Little Green Men.
There isn’t a lot of information available at the time of writing, but the films will all be released for a price of $17.99 each.
There will be more films hitting Irish cinemassos this year with films like The Last Days of the Living Dead and The Last Night of the Proms, as well as some films from other Irish studios.
But with the summer coming up, you can expect to see some films come out at the same time as others, which is great news.
