By Newswire – May 9, 2011 – 1:48 | Dermière Last Updated: May 9, 2011 – 13:48

Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons will be in Montreal from June 5 for the filming of The Words, a film by director Brian Klugman. They remain in the city for nearly a month and here are all the details of the filming of this production.

PRESS RELEASE – The Office of Film and Television (QFTC) is pleased to announce the confirmation of a new American film in Quebec this summer. The independent feature The Words starring Bradley Cooper (Limitless, Hangover, and soon Hangover Two) and Jeremy Irons (Die Hard with a Vengeance, Eragon, The Borgias) begins its pre-production this week. Filming will begin on June 5 for a period of 25 days, and will take place entirely in Montreal where the city will serve as a backdrop to New York and Paris.

The QFTC began discussions in early 2010 with the Hollywood production company Animus Films. Negotiations continued during the summer with the preparation of several proposals digital filming locations. The Words The project gained momentum in November during the economic mission organized by the QFTC the AFM (American Film Market) in Santa Monica. Among the 15 companies that participated in the Quebec delegation, the executive producer Francois Sylvestre took the opportunity to meet producers.

Producers Jim Young and Tatiana Kelly and the authors / directors Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal (Tron Legacy) were invited by the QFTC last month to discover the proposed filming locations and meet with service providers and AQTIS. This trip has definitely convinced the team of financial and creative strengths of Quebec. A few days later the producers announced their final decision to shoot in Montreal. “We are delighted with the enthusiasm that Quebec continues to attract internationally. Visible interest from foreign producers for Quebec is the result of three years of work and concerted mobilization of all our members, “recounted Hans Fraikin, the national commissioner.

François Sylvestre, who works with Nathalie Brunet Omada agency, said he was “proud to have helped bring a film in Montreal independent U.S. copyright.” With already nearly $ 200 million in volume shoots confirmed for 2011 and more than 3000 jobs created or maintained, all indications are that 2011 will be another record year for foreign productions shot in Quebec in 2010 surpassing the previous record year, which reached a total $ 214 million in direct economic benefits.

Jeremy Irons to Open ‘Transformations’ for West Cork Craft and Design Guild

Transformations – opening ceremony with Jeremy Irons on 4th May 2011
Exhibition runs from 4th May – 12th June
National Botanic Gardens Glasnevin

West Cork Craft and Design Guild “Transformations” Exhibition in Dublin and Edinburgh “Year of Craft 2011”

West Cork Craft and Design Guild has organised 2 high profile exhibitions in 2 capital cities for their celebratory “Year of Craft” events. The Guild has been exhibiting in west Cork for 12 years and exhibiting in Dublin will be the first time the Guild has travelled outside of west Cork to exhibit their work.

The title of the show is “Transformations” and focuses on:
• The process – the design, skill and craftsmanship behind the making of individual pieces.
• The Inspiration – i) our raw materials and how we choose them. ii) The West Cork landscape.
Raw materials are the starting point for all craft work, different materials appeal to artists on a visceral level – some even say the raw materials “call out” to them. There are artists who love to work with wool, making felt or spinning and weaving, others love the feel of slippery clay between the fingers, whilst the appeal of working and polishing wood or metal motivates others.
“Our finished work defines who we are as craftsmen and women, but how we choose our materials or they choose us, remains a mystery.”

Members will be doing demonstrations at the weekends and our film “An Inspired Gathering” will be on show in the auditorium.
