CIFF Fear Screen
Cork International Film Festival (CIFF) returns with its popular season of cinematic thrills, terror and suspense at Triskel.
Fear Screen: European Thrillers and Horrors at CIFF presents a selection of gripping tales and chilling masterpieces, curated by CIFF and screening every Thursday at 8pm for the month of March at Triskel. From Gothic thrillers to the best of the ‘found footage’ genre to darkly comic folklore, each feature will be introduced by CIFF Programme Manager, Si Edwards.
Cork audiences can catch Georges Franju’s 1960 French fairytale horror Eyes Without a Face, Czech Gothic thriller Morgiana (Juraj Herz, 1972), the terrifying [REC] from Spanish duo Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza (2007), and the darkly comic yet shocking Trollhunter from Norway (André Øvredal, 2010). The season of cinematic bone chillers will be complemented by an online programme of European horror shorts, available on CIFF’s Digital Festival Platform nationwide later next month. Details of this special digital programme will be announced very soon.
CIFF Director & CEO Fiona Clark said: “As Ireland’s leading film festival screening the best of European cinema, we are thrilled to bring this curated selection of European horror films to Cork next month. Our inaugural ‘Fear Screen’ season proved enormously popular last spring and we can’t wait for audiences to discover these horror classics on the big screen in the Gothic, atmospheric surrounds of the Triskel.”
