|KILLRUDDERY SILENT FILM FESTIVAL||art|
|SILENT CINEMA | KEVIN BROWNLOW|
Filmed at Killruddery House, Bray, Co. Dublin. March 2009.
2009 was the inaugral year of the Film Festival. It grew out of a series of screenings curated by Killruddery’s Creative Director Fionnuala Ardee and Irish film director Andrew Legge. The popularity of these screenings convinced them that there was an appetite for a silent film festival in Ireland. In 2009 silent film was the sole focus of the festival and in later years the remit has expanded but the importance of quality silent film to the festival remains.
The first film that the festival ever screened remains one its most popular. Down Wicklow Way is a compendium of archival footage curated by Sunniva O’Flynn from the Irish Film Archive which features the area around Killruddery. Our audience that night included some of the people featured and their families, it was a real privilege to show it.
