IFTA Viewing Season - Sing Streeet

  • Date:     Wednesday 2nd March
  • Venue:  Odeon Point Village
  • Time:    6.30pm

Irish Film & Television Academy are delighted to host a special IFTA viewing Season screening of Sing Street, on wednesday 2nd March at 6.30pm at the Odeon Point Village.

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces Conor 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. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos. The film stars Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Jack Reynor (Glassland), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Orphan Black) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones).
