Event description
The Irish Premiere of Romantic Comedy

About this Event

Director: Elizabeth Sankey

Producer: Oskar Pimlott, Chiara Ventura, Jeremy Warmsley

Music: Summer Camp

ROMANTIC COMEDY is a documentary that goes under the surface of our favourite films, seeking to better understand the way we view love, relationships and romance. They're hugely successful and deeply loved by many, but have often avoided critical analysis. Helped by a diverse chorus of critics, actors and filmmakers, and with original songs by her band Summer Camp, director Elizabeth Sankey embarks on a journey of investigation and self-discovery.

‘Any filmmaker who wants to make a rom-com that’s informed by the genre’s 100-year-old catalog would be wise to study Romantic Comedy: it will likely make your film better, not to mention save you time. This is a doc that delights as much as it informs, and in so doing serves as proof that a meaty subject addressed with a few thoughtful, personal touches is sufficient for a first-time filmmaker to emerge as an exciting new voice’ - Hollywood Reporter
