The programme for the Subtitle European Film Festival, which takes place in Kilkenny from November 25 to December 1, has been announced.

Now in its second year, the festival "will offer audiences a unique opportunity to catch some of the most popular European films, many of which have never been screened theatrically in Ireland".

Among this year's films are Easy Money (Sweden), Headhunters (Norway), A Hijacking (Denmark), The Intouchables (France) and Cousinhood (Spain), with seasons including Resurgent Russia and Crimewatch also part of the programme.

Guests at this year's festival will include Norwegian Headhunters star Aksel Hennie; Spanish actor Antonio de la Torre (Volver); Russian actor and star of the forthcoming Vampire Academy Danila Kozlovsky and rising Danish star Nicolaj Lie Kaas, who starred in The Killing and Susanne Bier's Brødre (remade as Brothers).

The festival's Artistic Director, Richard Cook, said: "Many of the brilliant films and TV shows that have captivated us for the last few years have come from Europe – The Killing, Borgen and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, to name a few. Many of these have also gone on to be remade by Hollywood studios. Subtitle gives audiences the chance to see where all this filmmaking talent comes from."
