Tomorrow evening the IFNY weekend series of new Irish films kicks off with a reception at NYU Glucksman Ireland House at 5:30pm, followed by Steph Green’s Run and Jump – with SNL’s Will Forte in a dramatic role – over at the Cantor Film Center, where all the screenings will take place, through Sunday, October 6th.
The weekend has an interesting mix of a little bit of everything, including the New York premiere of the documentary When Ali Came to Ireland on Sunday evening. Other films include Made in Belfast, Silence, King of the Travellers and The Hardy Bucks Movie. The directors of many of the films will be present for post-screening discussions.
The festival runs from October 4th through the 6th. All details about IFNY can be found here.
