Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst in Neil Joran's Interview with the Vampire

There is still time to catch some of the brilliance of Neil Jordan at Ballina Arts Centre as a film season dedicated to the famous screen writer and film director continues for two more nights, on August 4 and 5.

Ballina Film Club has been screening a selection of Neil Jordan's work at the arts centre throughout July.

Two further film screenings next Tuesday and Wednesday will bring the retrospective season to a close.

On Tuesday at 8pm, catch the 2009 Irish romance drama, Ondine.

Written and directed by Jordan, Ondine tells the story of a fisherman who discovers a woman in his fishing net.

His precocious daughter believes the woman to be a selkie, mythological creatures believed to live as seals in the sea, who shed their skin to become human on land.

The screening on Wednesday, at 8pm, will be something of a vamp fest.

The audience gets to pick a viewer's choice, and there are two vampire tales up for offer.

Interview with the Vampire, one of Jordan's most famous films, is an adaptation of an Anne Rice novel exploring the relationship between a group of bloodthirsty vampires, while Byzantium is a 2012 gothic thriller about a mother and daughter vampire duo hiding out in a rundown hotel.

Pick your preferred movie for the viewer's choice night at the Ballina Film Club Facebook page.

Tickets for the viewings cost €5 each.
