What we’re about
Welcome to Dublin Independent Movie Lovers. This is a group for everyone who loves independent and art-house cinema. We will be organising regular meetups so that members can go see films together, with the opportunity for some discussion afterwards over a coffee or drink (and maybe even some food!). Most events will take place in the IFI, Light House Cinema or Cineworld, with some events being hosted in other venues. A special effort will be made to arrange meetups during the film festivals that take place in Dublin during the year, including Dublin International Film Festival in February/March and the Arabic and French Film Festivals in the IFI in November.
Looking forward to meeting you at the cinema!

- World Cinema @ DCU: Benedetta (France, 2021)Dublin City University, Dublin 9, D
An exploration of religious feelings and sexual desires, Benedetta (2021) is a 17th century period piece based on a true story about a community of nuns.
"From showgirls to nuns: the latest sensation from the king of erotic thrillers immerses us in the religious visions and illicit desires of a 17th-century mystic abbess. Sensual, elegant and scandalous, Benedetta offers up a perversely provocative critique of religious hypocrisy." Mubi
This is a free screening followed by an engaging discussion (as well as a few pints at the DCU pub). Tea, coffee and snacks will be available, but feel free to bring your own!
