Special Guest Aidan Quinn will screen four of his films and take part in the Big Interview with Greg Dyke.

'Legends of the Fall' starring Aidan Quinn, Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins will be screened as our opening film on Wednesday 24th May.

The film tells the story of three brothers and their father living in the wilderness of Montana in the early 20th century and how their lives are affected by nature, history, war, and love. The film's time frame spans from the early 20th century; World War 1 through the Prohibition era, and ending with a brief scene set in 1963. The film was nominated for three Audience Academy Awards, John Toll winning the Oscar for Best Cinematography.

'Songcatcher' also starring Aidan Quinn, will screen on Friday 26th May

In the Appalachian mountains of 1907, musicologist Janet McTeer, stumbles upon a treasure trove of ancient Scots-Irish ballads, handed down from generation to generation. Lily ventures into the most isolated areas to collect these songs and finds herself increasingly enchanted by both the rugged purity of the music and the endurance of the local people as they carve out meaningful lives in the harshest conditions. It is not until she meets Tom - a handsome, hardened war veteran and talented musician - that she is forced to examine her motivations.

'The Assignment' starring Donald Sutherland, Ben Kingsley and Aidan Quinn will screen on Saturday 27th May

Annibal Ramirez played by Aidan Quinn is an American naval officer who looks remarkably like notorious international assassin Carlos Sanchez also played by Quinn. Veteran CIA agent Jack Shaw played by Donald Sutherland has a vendetta against Sanchez and recruits Ramirez to impersonate the fugitive. Along with Mossad operative Amos played by Ben Kingsley, Shaw begins training Ramirez to become Sanchez, but the mission proves to be incredibly perilous, and the American soon wonders if it's worth the risk. A spy thriller of the highest order.

'This is my Father' will screen on Sunday 28th May and will be introduced by Aidan Quinn himself. It is directed by his late brother Paul and shot by his brother Declan.

Set in 1930s Ireland, the film portrays a tragic love story focusing on the relationship between Fiona Flynn played by Moya Farrelly, a beautiful, seventeen-year-old from a middle-class family, and Kieran O'Dea played by Aidan Quinn, a shy labourer in his early thirties. 60 years later a middle-aged teacher played by James Caan, discovers a photo from his mother’s past that convinces him that she may have lied about his real father. Venturing into Ireland where he believes his real father to be, a tragic past slowly unfolds.
