Universal Pictures Ireland and Jameson Dublin International Film Festival are delighted to present a Charity Screening of the epic new action-adventure, ‘Dracula – Untold,’ in aid of St. Francis Hospice, Raheny on Tuesday September 30th at 7.30pm in The Savoy, O’Connell St. Tickets (€10 each) are available online from www.jdiff.com.
Special guests in attendance will be Irish Director Gary Shore and cast members Luke Evans (‘Fast & Furious 6,’ ‘Immortals’) and Sarah Gadon (‘A Dangerous Method,’ ‘The Amazing Spider Man 2’).
Shot on location in Northern Ireland in 2013, the much-anticipated film portrays the origin story of its title character, Count Dracula.
“I will screen my feature debut, ‘Dracula Untold,’ with an audience for the very first time. Apart from the honor of this being in Dublin, I wanted to use this opportunity to recognize the great work of St. Francis Hospice. I cannot speak more highly of the people who work there and the service it provides to patients and families,” says Shore. “Thank you JDIFF and St. Francis hospice for allowing me to do this.”
Ethel McKenna, Chief Executive Officer of St. Francis Hospice: “We are absolutely delighted that Dublin film-maker Gary Shore would dedicate his first screening to St. Francis Hospice. We are so deeply grateful to Gary, Universal Pictures Ireland and the Dublin International Film Festival for their support of this occasion.”
Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival: ”Anyone who saw Gary Shore’s wonderful short 2006 film ‘The Draft’ could see a filmmaker with a sophisticated visual sense matched with the bravura of a natural storyteller. Alongside his innovative advertising work, Gary was soon identified by Hollywood industry professionals as a talent to watch. The festival is delighted to welcome Gary and his lead actors to Dublin to celebrate the first screening in Ireland of his debut feature ‘Dracula Untold’ and to share this ambitious retelling of Bram Stoker’s most famous creation with a new generation of cinema audiences.”
