Pacino coming to Dublin festival

Hollywood star Al Pacino will visit Dublin for the premiere of his latest project.

The Scarface actor-turned-director has chosen the 10th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in February for the first screening of Wilde Salome, a documentary about Oscar Wilde.

Festival director Grainne Humphreys said she was honoured that Pacino chose the event for the premiere of what he has described as his most personal project ever.

"As a cinemagoer, I have long admired the ambition and range of Al Pacino's film career, which has created such an indelible legacy on world cinema," said Ms Humphreys.

"A provocateur, an innovator and a consummate artist who has created some of the most iconic characters in movie history, he is also a film director driven by his personal passions."

The festival runs from February 16 to 26.
