Some Notable Events

Apafi Manor the setting for award winning film "Malmkrog"

1st March 2020

At the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival, the award for Best Director in the Encounters Competition went to Cristi Puiu for his film "Malmkrog". The film is based on a text by Russian philosopher Vladimir Solovyov and is described as a global journey through history, a tour de force of thought. It was entirely shot in and around the Apafi Manor.

After filming had completed the Manor's library was left in a state of disarray. We are truly grateful to Dr Daniels, Professor Mark Almond and David Campbell of Everyman Books who, along with Mary Walsh and Jessica Douglas-Home, in a space of just 3 days put all the books back into their original order.
