Ida

In Ida, a novice nun on the cusp of taking her vows discovers that she is not who she thinks she is. Orphaned as a child, her true identity has never been made known to her until she discovers that she is the daughter of two Jews slaughtered during the Holocaust. Following this revelation, she makes contact with her last living relative, a world-weary aunt named Wanda, whom she accompanies on a road trip to find her parents' final resting place. What ensues is a coming-of-age tale that explores not only Ida's loss of innocence and first exposure to "the real world", but also one that casts a look at a Polish society haunted by the spectres of World War Two. Exquisitely framed and masterfully told, Ida is an elegant, nuanced drama that deserves to be seen. Simply put, it's a wonder. / Amy O'Connor

The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

Stephen Fry - More Fool Me

A stiff upper lip, tea and crumpets, Big Ben - these are just some iconic associations which spring to mind when conjuring images of our nearest neighbour. But when we consider an individual who personifies the rather pleasant spirit of Old Blighty few come closer than Stephen Fry. In the establishment but not of it, Fry simultaneously embodies the niceties of a nation yet avoids the insipidness so often required to win over its masses. Wit, raconteur and formidable Tweeter, his intellect has interrogated homophobia, tackled Monotheism and championed mental health awareness - “merely” nixers when factoring in his comedy output. This one man show beamed live from London documents Fry’s rather Wildean approach to life in late 80s and early 90s to celebrate a new volume of memoirs. Bertie Wooster would certainly not approve. / Aaron Purcell

Jozef Van Wissem : Only Lovers Left Alive

First things first, Jozef is a Dutch lutenist. Not since Vermeer committed Woman with a Lute to canvas around 1662 has the instrument been more attractive in the hands of someone. Van Wissem is also a composer most recently known for providing the score to Only Lovers Left Alive, Jim Jarmusch's acclaimed offbeat take on the vampire genre. Describing their collaboration, Van Wissem notes: "Jim's film is anti-contemporary-society. And the lute goes against all technology and against all computers and against all the shit you need". Van Wissem will be in conversation with Dan Gray whilst performing some of the soundtrack. And if you grab a photo with Van Wissem you might be able to also pass it off as a Dave Grohl moment to some grim friend.
