This is the first year that KIFF will be hosting a range of exciting live shows across the festival, which will take place across a variety of venues in Killarney, from October 19 – 22.

Celebrating its 24th edition this year, KIFF’s programmer Declan Lynch, has curated a series of film screenings, live acts, and film industry talks, as an integral part of KIFF 2023.

The live shows will add a thrilling new element to an already exciting programme for the upcoming festival this October. Speaking in advance of the official launch of the KIFF 2023 programme Declan said: "We are pushing beyond screening movies this year and inviting people to take a look behind the movie-making curtain by presenting three unique acts. Score, Sound and Script are our themes.”

SCORE: Singer and songwriter Molly O’ Mahony, will present her musical work in partnership with the students of Kerry Film School, at St. Mary’s Church on October 20, for what promises to be a truly unique and magical live experience.

SOUND: Buster Keaton’s 1924 comedy classic "Sherlock Jr" will be treated to a very live and very comical soundtrack by Symphonic Sapheads, Little John Nee and Fionn Robinson. Watch this period comedy come to life again on October 21

SCRIPT: A truly spectacular event will be presented by Dream Gun as they present their comedy parody of James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’. Dream Gun’s comedy troupe will reenact the script of the Titanic, as they present a bizarre and hilarious take on the epic tale. This live event will take place in the Plaza Hotel on October 20.

"We are thrilled to present a series of live events as part of KIFF 2023. These will be presented along with our traditional format of film screenings, industry talks, and business networking events. We view this as a great opportunity to engage with local businesses, audiences, and film fans alike, and we hope that our KIFF friends and supporters will enjoy the full series of exciting events that we look forward to bringing to Killarney this October,” said Festival Manager, Marie Linehan.

The KIFF 2023 full programme will be launched at the end of September and will showcase film and filmmaking talent across 30+ screenings via a truly exciting program that is not to be missed.

Tickets to the live events are now on sale and booking early is advisable.
