Irish Film Festival – NYC


It is that time of year again.  The annual three day Irish festival will showcase six critically acclaimed Irish films at NYU’s Cantor Film Center. This year’s festival will take place  from October 4th through 7th. The festival kicks off Friday October 4th with “Run and Jump” starring Saturday Night Live’s Will Forte and directed by the Oscar-nominated Steph Green (see photo above). The schedule for the festival is as follows:

Friday 5.30 PM Reception at Glucksman Ireland House

I am really looking forward to this festival. In celebration of this festival I have added new categories to this site – Irish Film. It is a work in progress and features only Irish/Irish themed movies and the categories so far are documentaries, biographical movies and Irish folklore. I will continue to add more categories.  I hope you will enjoy a great Irish film this weekend.
