British thespian Vanessa Redgrave will receive the festival’s Volta award for significant contribution to cinema. Wheatley will deliver a directors’ masterclass while BAFTA and Oscar winning costume designer Alexandra Byrne (Elizabeth: The Golden Age) will deliver a costume designers’ masterclass. 

Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director, said, “I’m thrilled with the selection of films that we are bringing to Dublin for the Dublin International Film Festival 2017 that not only showcases some of the biggest names in world cinema but features a selection of first time directors from across the globe who will make a serious impression with our audience in this and in coming years. To be able to include new Irish films from Aisling Walsh, Jim Sheridan, Emer Reynolds, Aiden Gillen, John Butler, Neasa Ní Chianán, Juanita Wilson and Ken Wardrop as just some of the Irish filmmakers in the festival is an extraordinary testament to the current strength and depth of the Irish film industry.”
