THE Cork International Film Festival (CIFF) has launched an interactive city-wide trail of famous costumes, allowing Corkonians to find a new way to enjoy a stroll within their five-kilometre radius.

In partnership with the Irish Costume Archive, CIFF has launched a city-wide trail of costumes from significant Irish films and major television productions filmed in Cork or featuring Cork talent.

Each costume along the trail has been specially selected in celebration of its Cork connection and will be displayed throughout different venue’s windows in the city centre.

To coincide with the garments, a podcast is also available to inform and entertain listeners as they make their way through the city, featuring interviews with Cork Costume Trail curators Eimer Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh and Veerle Dehaene along with Cork Public Museum curator Daniel Breen, and introductions by Red FM’s Dave MacArdle.

Listeners can tune into the behind-the-scenes story while following the interactive online map.
