Sing Street to open Dublin International film Festival December 18, 2015


Following on from the news that it will make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, John Carney’s latest, Sing Street, is now set to open the  the 2016 Audi Dublin International Film Festival on 18th February.

The nostalgic musical, written and directed by Carney, ‘takes us back to 1980s Dublin where the recession forces 14-year-old Cosmo out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school, where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. There, he turns to music and forms a ragtag band, shooting scrappy music videos, and finding refuge and love with the beautiful 16-year-old Raphina.’

Starring Ferdia Walsh- Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Jack Reynor, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Aidan Gillen, the film was Produced by Martina Niland, Anthony Bregman, Paul Trijbits, Christian Grass and John Carney.
