Irish documentary festival announces 2005 dates

The 4th annual Stranger Than Fiction documentary festival and market has announced that this year's event will run in Dublin, Ireland, from September 29 to October 2 2005.
This year's event will host a number of world premieres of new Irish documentaries as well as Irish premieres of international hit titles. The full programme will be announced on September 9, but key titles already secured include Fernando E. Solanas’ 'A Social Genocide / Memoria Del Saqueo' (Argentina / France) Tian Zhuangzhuang's 'Delamu', 'The 3 Rooms of Melancholia', and the 2005 Oscar-winning 'Born into Brothels'. The festival will also feature a retrospective and master-class with Frederick Wiseman.
Stranger Than Fiction is both a public film festival and an industry market. Organised by Screen Producers Ireland and funded by the Irish Film Board and Irish broadcasters RTE, TG4 and TV3, the festival market is a vital element of Stranger Than Fiction, providing opportunities for Irish producers to meet with commissioning editors from a number of key international broadcasters.
In addition, an expanded range of seminars, retrospectives and sidebar events will take place at this year's festival, including a series of master classes being given by world class documentary filmmakers. The Stranger Than Fiction documentary festival is run by the Irish Film Institute of Ireland which is the national body for film culture in Ireland.
