The first ever festival for 'The Greatest Film Ever Made' is happening in Dublin next month
For years and years and years, Citizen Kane constantly topped the polls for Greatest Film Ever Made...
Every ten years, the poll is taken, and in 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992 and 2002, Citizen Kane topped that poll.
But then, in the 2012 poll, it came in second, and Alfred Hitchcock's psychological thriller Vertigo took the top spot.
While the film was a bit of a box office dud (and critics weren't big fans either) when it was initially released, it was only with hindsight that it came to be the considered as the classic it so clearly was.
And now, sixty years on since the movie was released in September 1957, the movie is getting it's very own international festival dedicated solely to it being created in the first place and the influence it has had throughout the years, and the inaugural festival will debut right here in Ireland.
Tickets to the one-day festival can be purchased here and they will include access to the talks and presentations about the movie on 14 September in the Central Hotel in Dublin, before the screening of the movie in the Lighthouse Cinema that evening.
This is a must for fans of the classic film, as well as movie lovers who have never caught it on the big screen.
