Finally, the website for this weekend’s Irish film festival in NYC, the CraicFest 2011, is up for all to see.   There are also musical performances in the evenings after the films have been screened.

The Tribeca Cinemas again are home to the events.

The big opener   – White Irish Drinkers – which stars Karen Allen, Stephen Lang and Peter Rigert,   is already sold out.

PS – for anyone not familiar with the term, “craic” is a Gaelic word, for which the closest translation would be “fun”.

Looking forward to DMD

One of the films I’m most anticipating once we get through the current World Cup-induced film drought is Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maaro Dum.

If his Bluffmaster was anything to go by – and given that this flic will star Abhishek Bachchan, Prateik Babbar and Aditya Pancholi – then I think it may well be a stylish and fun ride.

3 Idiots DVD coming to US stores in April

Well, well, I just heard that the DVD of the huge Christmas 2009 hit 3 Idiots – starring Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani and Kareena Kapoor – will be available through various US outlets next month.

Starting on April 26, it can be found at Target, Amazon and FYE, among others.

The DVD will have English, French and Spanish subtitles and will also contain some extra features, including one entitles “Idiots in Ladakh”.

Will be very curious to see this release and the added features, given Aamir’s rep as being the guy “who really gets the whole marketing thing.”
