Men At Lunch – Narrated by Fionnula Flanagan, Men at Lunch reveals the remarkable untold story behind one of the most iconic images of the 20th century, Lunch atop a Skyscraper, taken on the 69th floor of the Rockefeller Building in the autumn of 1932. Part homage, part investigation, Men at Lunch is the revealing tale of an American icon, an unprecedented race to the sky and the immigrant workers who built New York.

What Richard Did – Lenny Abrahamson’s much anticipated film What Richard Did will receive its world premiere at TIFF – Abrahamson’s film is also set for a 5th October cinema release in Ireland. What Richard Did follows Richard Karlsen, golden-boy athlete and undisputed alpha-male of his privileged set of South Dublin teenagers, through the summer between the end of school and the beginning of university. The world is bright and everything seems possible, until in one furious, reckless moment Richard does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him. Featuring extraordinary performances from its mainly young cast, What Richard Did is a quietly devastating study of a boy confronting the gap between who he thought he was and who he proves to be. Featuring an ensemble of young Irish actors including Jack Reynor, Sam Keeley and Roisin Murphy as well as established talent including Lorraine Pilkington and Lars Mikkelsen (star of the Danish hit series, The Killing). Written by Malcolm Campbell (Skins, Shameless) What Richard Did is the third film from acclaimed director Lenny Abrahamson, whose previous work includes Garage and Adam & Paul. Speaking on the selection of his film Abrahamson said that he’s “delighted to premiere What Richard Did at Toronto. It’s a great festival and an ideal launch for the film.” Producer Ed Guiney commented “We are incredibly proud of Lenny Abrahamson’s new film What Richard Did . I can’t think of a better way to launch it internationally than at the Toronto International Film Festival where it will have its world premiere ahead of its release in Ireland in October.”
