Next week sees the Audi Dublin International Film Festival kick off in earnest, with a huge selection of films on show across the city.

This year sees a wide variety of genres, topics, talks and events taking place, not to mention a ton of special guests including Richard Gere, Dame Angela Lansbury, Claudia Cardinale and many others. We spoke to Grainne about programming the festival, what criteria she has and how she balances between populist, mainstream films and more arthouse fare.
