The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

Bantum Prunch

Bantum's disc-spinning since he dropped the very well received Legion LP has been, in a word, Princely. He has taken to playing extended Prince sets, with all the regular tunes that'll have you insisting that your claret beanie is in fact a raspberry beret, and disco-stepping to Con-trov-ersy. Trade your chin-frilled blousons for frilled bibs at this brunch spectacular. Celebrating the Odessa Club's decade at the forefront of party-starting and party-recovery, a disco brunch is the most respectful way to say cheers and toast another ten years of evening misbehaviour and early-afternoon amends in this Dublin institution. Brunch like they didn't even know how to in 1999. / Kate Coleman

Britten's War Requiem

November's war commemorations have become more muddled and jingoistic across the pond in recent years, but in Ireland, we are finally coming to terms with our war dead. A bit late, yes, but at least we've stopped rigging Poppy boxes with sharp objects to punish charitable souls for donating. This year, Britten's War Requiem will be performed in St Patrick's Cathedral, a deconstructed latin requiem with its Dies irae and Libera me movements, as well as nine of Wilfred Owen's war poems interspersed within. As bombastically orchestrally overpowering as any of Britten's work, his personal pacifism did not impact on the potency of this piece. As much a product of destruction as it is of creation, this should be a magical musical evening in the cavernous cathedral. / Kate Coleman

Standby

You'll love Once, they said. You'll love Once so much that we will buy it for you on DVD, because you seem like such a Once person. It was not to be. That love letter and busky serenade to the city was my own personal hell, and thus I expected Standby to leave me equally blank-faced. It was not to be. Maybe it's because it feels like a very long Failte Ireland advert, and I have a special place in my heart for those, or maybe it's because Jessica Paré is one of the prettiest girls I have ever seen. Maybe it's because Brian Gleeson is charismatic and sweet and I think he'd be fun to have a pint with, and because the pace is fast and carefree and it feels easy breezy. Full marks for fun, stupid, fun. / Kate Coleman

Interstellar

Christopher Nolan is one of those rare breed of directors who has mastered the craft of overshadowing any cast he works with. From his early promise with Insomnia through Batman and Inception, he is now a blockbuster director. Interstellar is about space and saving the human race. Matthew McConaughey cements his comeback, Anna Hathaway still overacts, Jessica Chastain aces it and Mackenzie Foy makes a memorable mark before the fork in the road takes her down Lohan Lane or Gosling Grove. But it's really about Nolan's vision, aided by Hans Zimmer's powerful soundtrack, which propels this tale. Of course, he's wise enough to tether the mission to the one necessary constant in the personal universe - that of love. There's been much ado about plot holes and wormholes but as a pure cinematic spectacle, it's a perfect popcorn experience. Or maybe skip the popcorn and put the savings towards an IMAX viewing of it. / Michael McDermott

French New Wave and Cinephilia

On detailing French New Wave films to a friend, I have always amusingly described the scenario of the beautiful woman and the stylish man conversing. ‘Do you love me?’ he asks. ‘I don’t know’ she answers, as if he was asking her what she would rather, Tayto or Walkers. The image of the cool, unaffected French doesn't come from nowhere but I’ll take it any day over Hollywood’s clear motivation and emotional response. Showing a love of classic Hollywood directors such as Hitchcock, Godard, Truffaut and the rest of the lads, heralded cinema as art and created films that played with form, theme, and visuals out of their undying fandom. From the heartbreaking final static shot in The 400 Blows, to the coolest dance ever to be captured by film in Band of Outsiders, to be a fan of cinema, is to worship at the ground of the French New Wave. / Ciara Roche
