And yet another premiere event for ‘Brooklyn’ has been announced! Ramping up to its 33rd edition next March, the Miami International Film Festival has set its annual GEMS lineup for October 22 through 25, screening breakouts from Cannes, Sundance and Berlin, and several of this year’s major Oscar contenders. Saoirse’s ‘Brooklyn’, which also stars actor Domhnall Gleeson, is set to open the festival on the 22nd of October.
GEMS will open with John Crowley’s Sundance favorite “Brooklyn,” which Fox Searchlight is rolling out to the fall fests including Toronto. The Nick Hornby-scripted period romance starring Saoirse Ronan is among Searchlight’s awards entrants this year alongside “Youth,” also a GEMS entry. The fest closes with “The 33,” starring Antonio Banderas as one of the Chilean miners trapped underground for 69 days in 2010.
It has been confirmed that Saoirse’s ‘Brooklyn’ is getting a premiere during London Film Festival, which runs from runs from October 7 to 18. The exact date of the event is yet to be released.
There will be a big Irish presence at next month’s London Film Festival, with domestic productions screening in competition and Irish stars and directors set to grace the red carpet. The Michael Fassbender-starring Steve Jobs, the Brendan Gleeson-starring Suffragette and the Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson-starring adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s Brooklyn will all receive their European premieres with gala screenings at the festival. Brooklyn was filmed in Dublin, Wicklow and Wexford.
