It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas down at the Irish Film Institute! Yup, that's right, they're hosting a whole season of Christmas cinema to take you through to the big day itself.

Get your bah humbug on with Billy Bob Thornton and Bill Murray in Bad Santa and Scrooged, two cinematic crackers that make up the Anti-Christmas series. For those of you who are a little more likely to deck the halls there's plenty of festive fun Frank Capra's classic, It's A Wonderful Life.

Feast your mince pies on a truly scrumptious Christmas treat with Christmas in Connecticut. The 1945 comedy is December's Feast Your Eyes film and is brimming with laughter and large amounts of food. And finally, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without Scrooge himself so it's no surprise that December's Monthly Must-See Cinema is an adaptation of one of Dickens' most famous novels.

Head over to the IFI for more details!
