Steamin’ + Dreamin’: The Grandmaster Cash Story is the controversial and moving tale of a struggling young Cork musician. Our guide is YouTube sensation and Cork’s most infamous rapper, Grandmaster Cash. Through a series of shocking and hilarious interviews, we learn about his dreams and frustrations – and why Cork means so much to him. We hear opinions from key figures in the local music and political scenes, and reach some fascinating conclusions about the nature of hip-hop culture.
But just as the documentary is coming together, an unforeseen event causes major problems for the production – and a crisis of conscience for Grandmaster Cash. It might just take the intervention of a major Irish celebrity to sort things out…

Arctic Monkeys at The Apollo is a cinematic feast with impressive, intuitive, confidently held master shots – a film that invites the audience to immerse themselves in the style and force of the UK’s most striking band as they deliver one of their most intense performances to date.
It is an exceptionally high standard piece directed by Richard Ayoade (regular Warp Films music video director and actor from Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh and The I.T. Crowd, captured exquisitely on film by name directors of photography led by Danny Cohen (This is England, Pierrepoint), edited by BAFTA winning editor Nick Fenton (The Boy Who’s Skin Fell Off, Sigur Ros documentary Heima), and produced by BAFTA winning Diarmid Scrimshaw from acclaimed Warp Films (the production company behind Dead Man’s Shoes and This Is England).

| Brendan Canty, Christoph Green | USA | 88mins |
Formed in 1994 from the ashes of alternative country group Uncle Tupelo Wilco have recently released their seventh studio album, Wilco (The Album). On April 18, 2009, the Chicago sextet released Ashes of American Flags, a film documenting portions of their 2008 tour, to celebrate Record Store Day.
Culled from concerts in five quintessentially American venues—Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, The Mobile Civic Center, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and the 9:30 Club in Washington DC—the film captures the energy, poignancy and musicality of a Wilco concert and tour, as well as offering intimate insights on individual band members and providing a snap shot of life on the road with the multiple Grammy-winners.

All Tomorrow’s Parties
| Thur 5th Nov | Warp Film presents All Tomorrow’s Parties | 9pm | €3 | The Pavilion |
| Jonathan Caouette | England | 82mins |

ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES is a kaleidoscopic journey into the parallel musical universe of the cult music festival of the same name. The film is a semi-found multi media bricolage shot by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s recent history, with key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire) and features amongst others: Belle And Sebastian, Grizzly Bear, Sonic Youth, Battles, Portishead, Daniel Johnston, Grinderman, David Cross, Animal Collective, The Boredoms, Les Savy Fav, Mogwai, Slint, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, GZA, Seasick Steve, Iggy and the Stooges, F**k Buttons, Shellac, Patti Smith and John Cooper Clark. The film is produced by Luke Morris and co-developed and financed by the Warp X partners, Film4, UK Film Council, EM Media and Screen Yorkshire.
All Tomorrow’s Parties is an organisation based in London that has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the UK and worldwide for almost ten years. It was founded by Barry Hogan in 1999 in preparation for the first All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, the line-up of which was curated by Mogwai and took place in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has taken place every year, and continues to set itself apart from others like Reading or Glastonbury by staying intimate, un-corporate and fan-friendly. Another vital difference is that the line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists, resulting in unpredictable and exciting events which combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre.
This is a concert film set around the cult music festival that serves up a heady combination of alternative music, crazy golf and chalet living. This post-punk DIY bricolage uses material generated by the fans and musicians themselves, on a multitude of formats including Super8, camcorder and mobile phone material, over the history of the festival, to capture the uncompromising spirit of a parallel music universe.
Unlike most live films, this one actually manages to capture the creative chaos of a festival. – The Wire
