Description

This black and white photo shows the festival director Dermot Breen sitting alongside Tom Nicholas. Breen is in full flight, arm outstretched, while Nicholas leans forward, glass in hand, smiling for the camera. Nicholas was a founding member of the London Friends of Cork and often hosted events at the Martini Terrace in London for the festival. The 1980 film festival programme notes that this group of London-based film people raised thousands of pounds to help the development of the Cork festival. Nicholas went on to become Managing Director of Columbia-EMI-Warner Distributors.

Behind Breen and Nicholas, in a light-coloured suit, we notice the Cork businessman and festival committee member, Dick Beamish. Around them, we sense the crowded room, decorated with Harp Lager signage of the festival sponsors, whose name also adorns the drink coasters that litter the table beside them.
