logobannerThe Corona Cork Film Festival announces new dates for its 2009 event, moving two weeks from it’s traditional slot to November 1st to 8th 2009.

International entries deadline is June 26th 2009
Irish entries deadline is July 31st 2009

Festival Director Mick Hannigan, making the announcement commented  “The September/October period of the global film festival calendar has become  congested in recent years and vying for films about to be premiered in Locarno, Toronto and London; has become increasingly difficult. Moving to November will allow us to programme with more freedom.

The Cork festival is committed to programming innovative and independent Irish and International cinema. We look forward to focusing on a true celebration of short films, documentaries and independent cinema in November. We believe the November dates will be attractive to both the national film community and to the festival’s large and loyal local audience.”
