The pdf version includes profiles of festival jury members Michael O’Herlihy (Ireland), Carmen Dillon (UK), Dagmar Hirtz (Germany), Patrick Carey (Ireland), Bert Haanstra (Netherlands), Joy Batchelor (UK), Jerzy Bossak (Poland), Tony Barry (Ireland) and Ronnie Saunders (Ireland). Programme listings include a programme of features and shorts for a Canadian film week which was staged with the collaboration of Jean Lefebvre, Canadian Secretary of the State Department. In addition, the Association of Independent Producers Ireland (AIP) curated an Irish Showcase of feature films and shorts including Cry of the Mountain (Eamon de Buitlear); The Special Per Cent (Jim Sherwin); Revival – Pearse’s Concept of Ireland (Louis Marcus); So … Who Needs the Training (Tiernan MacBride) with Niall Tóibín; and Portrait of a Library (Kieran Hickey) starring Cyril Cusack. The programme also details a John Boorman Season (p.76) and a selection of his films was shown that year. We note an article by Vida Breen, Cork Film Festival – 25 years on (pp.7-8), that references the origins of the festival and the London Friends of Cork whose work raised thousands of pounds for the festival. The brochure also includes a number of advertisements from local and national companies across all sectors of the business world.
