Stranger than Fiction

The Irish Film Institute's Stranger than Fiction documentary film festival returns to Dublin from 26th - 29th September.  The festival will feature an array of films, both short and regular length from both home and abroad.  The full program of events can be found here.

I quite fancy seeing Muscle Shoals about southern US music and Aisling Gheal about sean-nós singers in rural Ireland.  Hmm, sensing a theme here!
As you would expect, they're also running a number of masterclasses, talks and panel discussions with some of the featured filmmakers.  Tickets for each film cost €9 and IFI membership is required but if you're a regular IFI attendee, the €25 annual charge is a steal.  Don't worry if you only want to see one or two movies - they'll add a "one off membership" to your ticket at a cost of €1.

The IFI has very kindly offered Dublinculture some tickets to give away to Salma.  We've got two pairs of tickets for the showing on Friday 27th September at 1830.

About the film
Throughout her extraordinary career, director Kim Longinotto has given a voice to strong female characters and Salma is no different. In the documentary, respected Tamil poet Salma returns to her village where as a child, she was locked up by her parents and given up to an arranged marriage.

To win,just re-tweet the link to this blog post and we'll announce the winners on Monday 23rd September.
