Next week's 12th ACC Bank Dublin Film Festival opens with the world premiere of A Further Gesture, a film about an IRA prisoner who escapes with almost forty others from Long Kesh and eventually makes his way to New York where he finds himself involved in helping a group of South American revolutionaries.

The film stars Stephen Rea and was written by Ronan Bennett, himself a former prisoner in Long Kesh who is now an acclaimed writer.

Another Irish premiere is David Cronenberg's controversial Crash which has yet to get a classification from the censor.

The festival has the usual tremendous mix of Irish, American, European and world cinema on offer. Well worth checking out.
