The Irish Film Festival Boston will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with its first ever two-day drive-in event on October 9 – 10, 2020, at the Irish Cultural Center (ICC) in nearby Canton, MA. Beginning both nights at 7:00 p.m. EST, the event will showcase a selection of the new talents, voices and perspectives that have emerged from the Irish film industry in recent years.
The Irish Film Festival Boston has attracted many talented filmmakers and a diverse audience over its 20-year history. The festival continues to introduce patrons to all facets of Irish cinema with a focus on films that challenge traditional conceptions of Irish culture. They will also offer a virtual screening event later this year to showcase more of its program from the original lineup in March.
Irish film fans can look forward to the U.S. premiere of The Last Right, featuring Golden Globe winning and Emmy nominated actor, Brian Cox, for his role in HBO’s television series Succession, and the New England Premiere of A Bump Along the Way, starring Bronagh Gallagher, best known for her roles in Pulp Fiction, The Commitments and Sherlock Holmes.
