The festival had a pretty good day on Friday when we featured on the second page of the Irish Times's ‘The Ticket’, in a feature written by Donald Clarke. We are also  lucky enough to have Mr Clarke, as well as fellow Irish Times film critic, former Jameson's Dublin Festival Jury member, and president of The Dublin Film Critics Circle Tara Brady on the jury for our very own New Talent Award 2013.
