The first Jameson Dublin International Film Festival will come to an end with a sold out world première of new Irish film 'Dead Bodies' tonight.

Robert Quinn's digital feature film is a dark and stylish thriller; it was the first Savoy festival screening to sell out.

The 8-day festival exceeded all box-office targets with total admissions of almost 20,000.

Sixty-six films from 30 countries were screened during the inaugural DIFF, which featured a host of new Irish features as well as major international films.

Colin Farrell, Jim Sheridan, Alan Parker, Rebecca Miller, Neil Jordan, The Corrs, Larry Mullen, Brenda Fricker, Laura Linney, Roddy Doyle and Michael Winterbottom were just a few of the world-famous names to be found in Dublin during the eight-day festival.
