1990 Cork Film Festival programme content
This is a PDF of the 1990 festival programme. The 1990 cover, designed by Kieran O’Connor, is of a photographic gritty realist scene comprising a large silver film reel against a concrete distressed-coloured grey/blue-black background. The programme is introduced by the festival director Mick Hannigan and includes an image of himself and staff including Ruth Riddick, Eddie Noonan, Fran Bergin, Helen Farrell, Kieran O’Connor and Pat Coughlan. The opening film was Nikita (Luc Besson, 1989) and the closing film was Cyrano De Bergerac (Jean-Paul Rappeneau, 1990).
Festival notes include Focus on Su Friedrich (page 66); The Media Show; Five Feminist Minutes; and Italian Season which accompanied the screening of Bicycle Thieves (Vittorio De Sica, 1948), La Strada (Frederico Fellini, 1954), and other Italian films. A series of seminars were held that year and included contributions from Simon Relph, Alan Gilsenan, Jane Gogan, Louis Marcus (Hidden Lives-Listening to the Pain  was shown that year), Mick Hannigan, Thaddeus O’Sullivan, and Pat Murphy.
