IFI French Film Festival

Returning for an impressive 15th year, the French Film Festival is proof that there are more than enough cinephiles in Dublin to merit such a specific event. With the best of new French feature films on show, as well as documentaries and a few French classics, there is more than enough to intrigue any cinemagoers’ french fancy. The festival will run until November 30th.


Bantum Brunch

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the Odessa club and restaurant is throwing an unusual celebratory brunch featuring funky music from top Irish electric band Bantum. An interesting combination of great food and great music, there is surely no more stylish a way to enjoy a mid-afternoon meal.
