Kerry announces stellar jury
The 12th annual Kerry Film Festival (KFF, October 29-November 5) has put together a heavyweight jury for this year’s edition. Irish star Cillian Murphy (Inception) will serve as an adjudicator alongside animator Norton Virgien (The Rugrats Movie) and documentarian Geoffrey Smith (Presumed Guilty).
In addition, BAFTA-winning British director Paul Greengrass (the Bourne series) will be an adjudicator for the short film competition.
KFF Director Sarah Smyth said, “We are delighted and honoured to announce that such an illustrious group of adjudicators have agreed to share their wealth of experience with us. They will certainly have their work cut out with the quality and sheer number of entries that we have received this year.”
KFF has awards for Best Film, Best Irish Short, Best International Short, Best Animation and Best Irish Documentary. The festival also presents a Children’s Audience Award and the John Moore Audience Award, sponsored by the Irish-born director who is set to direct the fifth Die Hard film.
