The School of English at Trinity College Dublin is proud to host a series of Frankenstein-themed events and initiatives as part of the international Frankenreads festival. Events hosted include; lectures, a One University-One Book initiative, a book giveaway, a poster competition, a screening of the 2011 Royal National Theatre production of Frankenstein, directed by Danny Boyle, and a full reading of the novel on 31 October 2018.

IFI Family Festival

Irish Film Institute (IFI)

Spread your film wings this summer with our great programme choices. Stop off in Japan for a brand new anime, or touch down in Australia; root for Sune in Sweden, or feisty Ladhaki girl Chuskit in India. However different the setting, many of the films we’ve chosen share a common theme of characters trying to find their own way against family traditions. Biodiversity and conservation play a part too, in our rainforest-set minibeast opening film and Sunday’s closing film. With Irish premieres and big screen escapades, whatever the weather, you can see the world this July at the IFI.
