Music Documentaries At The Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

Guest curators Allison and Tiffany Anders will present a series of music documentaries at this year’s Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

A series of music films chosen by acclaimed American film director Allison Anders and her daughter Tiffany Anders will create the core of an exciting musical strand as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2014.

Over 50 musicians including Mick Jagger, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen were interviewed for Morgan Neville’s Oscar nominated 20 Feet From Stardom, a powerful insight into the life of a backing singer.

In Good Ol’ Freda, The Beatles’ secretary Freda Kelly shares never-before-told stories of her time with the band.

Dublin punk Reb Kennedy’s music dream took him to California in 1977, and the delightful Los Wild Ones tells his story.

A special not-to-be-missed event taking place in The Sugar Club on February 21st is the world premiere of Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin performing the live score to their soundtrack of George A Romero’s classic zombie film Dawn of the Dead. Following the performance, Forza Italo DJs will take to the decks, playing tracks from the golden age of Italo-disco, giallo soundtracks and synth music of the late 70s and early 80s.

Allison and Tiffany Anders and the subjects of some of their selected films will also be taking part in a panel discussion hosted by that Nialler9 during the festival.

This will be the twelfth Jameson Dublin International Film Festival and this year it takes place at various venues around Dublin from February 13th to 23rd February 2014. The full schedule details for the festival’s 130+ films, workshops and masterclasses will be announced on January 20th.
