Fave film chosen in IFI heaven


March sees the Irish Film Institute launch a welcome tribute to the organisation’s late programmer, Pete Walsh. It hardly needs to be said that the core of the celebrations will be a season of Pete’s favourite films.

Titled “It’s All Culture”, the strand, which begins on March 9th, features such diverse releases as Ivan Passer’s Cutter’s Way, Jake Kasdan’s Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, James Toback’s Fingers and – a particular enthusiasm of Mr Walsh’s – Leonard Kastle’s The Honeymoon Killers.

Pay particular attention to the IFI’s screening of John Ford’s untouchable The Searchers next Monday. That presentation is in aid of Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross, where Pete spent his last few weeks. Tickets are €20, with a wine reception after the event. ifi.ie
