The festival kicks off next week for 11 days, and during that time the capital city is going to be chock full of stars like Al Pacino, Mark Wahlberg, Oscar nominee Glenn Close and Martin Sheen, who will all be showing off their latest projects.

"It's a special anniversary year for the festival and I am truly humbled by the dazzling array of international filmmaking talent who will attend this year's event. It's a mark of respect for Irish cinema worldwide and the reputation of our event in particular,” says festival director Gráinne Humphreys.
