The festival's opening film this year is La Vie en Rose, depicting the extraordinary life story of singer Edith Piaf. The screening of this French Oscar-winner also marks Skerries twinning with the canton Guichon in France.
On Saturday afternoon there will also be a children's screening of the classic ET.
