British actor Trevor Howard talks about a potential Irish film industry and his fondness for the Cork Film Festival.

The RTÉ programme 'Kino The World of Cinema' speaks to Trevor Howard at the Cork Film Festival. The star of films 'Brief Encounter' 'Ryan's Daughter' and 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' is asked about the potential for an Irish film industry. 

On the film festival in Cork Trevor Howard is most enthusiastic but stresses the need to keep the event a festival for film.

This Cork Film Festival is a great event I would hate to see it just...There is talk about incorporating other things into this festival but that is nothing to do with films like having horse races, and soccer matches rugger matches...which sounds as if perhaps it isn't doing what it intended to do.

Kino The World of Cinema broadcast in 1969.
