Gabriel Byrne, Tim Roth and Avengers Assemble director Joss Whedon will also be in attendance at the eleven day event.

Irish actors Kelly Campbell and Killian Scott - who both feature in screenings of Black Ice and The Good Man at the festival – announced the programme on Wednesday 23 January.

The festival kicks off with the opening gala screening of Broken, which will be attended by one the film’s stars, Tim Roth. The Brit actor plays a father looking after his 11 year old daughter whose life changes after she witnesses a violent attack in a London suburb. Cillian Murphy also stars.

Guest of honour Danny DeVito will be gracing the festival with his presence for an interactive screening of LA Confidential, part of the Jameson Cult Film Club.

Part of the line-up of screenings also includes the modern love story Kelly + Victor, the debut feature from documentary maker Kieran Evans.

Concluding the festival is Blood Rising, a documentary about the victims of femicide in Juarez, Mexico.
There is also a musical treat for film fans, with a concert attended by Oscar winning film composer Dario Marianelli (Pride and Prejudice, Anna Karenina, Atonement), featuring many of his famous scores.

The festival is a citywide event that takes place in all of the Dublin City Centre cinemas including Cineworld, The Savoy, Screen, Irish Film Institute and Light House Cinema in Smithfield. The majority of films shown at the film festival are Irish premieres and will be the only time that they are screened in Ireland.
