There have been changes galore at JDIFF. A few weeks ago, it was announced that the event would be moving from February to March. This makes all kind of sense. The weather is that bit less horrible. Some distance is established between the Dublin festival and Berlin. Next year, events kick off on March 19th. We have it marked in the calendar.

This week, our friends at JDIFF announced the launch of DIFF PIX, which will become its platform for pop-up screenings and special events. Those who join up will receive regular updates and will gain the chance to win tickets to many film-related bashes throughout this great city. To celebrate the launch, the festival will be seeking to discover the best ever film set in and around Dublin. The winner will be screened on July 26th. Go to for more information on how to get tickets and register with DIFFpix. If Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx (pictured above) wins we hereby commit ourself to eating a bucket of boxty in a public place.

And the nominees are…
