Description

The 1976 festival programme cover is predominantly green-coloured with the image of a globe wrapped in a strip of film whose tip settles on the city of Cork. The strip of film spells out the word ‘Film’ across the lower half of the page. The programme cover was designed by Frank Sanquest.

This was celebratory issue of the festival programme for the 21st edition of the festival costing 50 pence. The softbound 40-page programme was edited by Padraig O Maidin. 

The festival held a retrospective programme saluting 20th Century-FOX and screened some of their films for their CORK SALUTES programme. The programme notes include a retrospective view of the festival by Dr SF Pettit from University College Cork (pages 5-7) and a tribute to the Indian producer Satyajit Ray (page 31). The festival jury in 1976 included Sheamus Smith, Roger Manvell, Ernst Kruger and Conor Sweeny. 

We note the programme adverts include an acknowledgement to the artist Tadg Lehane, based on Patrick Street in Cork, who was the display artist for the festival since its inception in 1956 (page 28).
