Irish Film New York
A new Irish Contemporary Screening Series at NYU
The very best in contemporary Irish cinema comes to New York with a special three-day screening series running from Friday, 30th September to Sunday, 2nd October featuring filmmaker Q&As, panel discussions, and filmmaker receptions.
Films include Knuckle, a visceral look at bare knuckle boxing among the Irish Traveller community, the Galway Film Fleadh-winning feature Parked, a story of friendship, hope, and perseverance between two ‘neighbours’ living in their cars, starring Colm Meaney, and The Runway, where the citizens of County Cork come to the aid of a South American pilot who has crash landed in their town.
All three films are up for limited release in the United States in the forthcoming months. Other films screening include Marian Quinn’s 32A, Maya Derringtons’ documentary Pyjama Girls, and Tom Hall’s Sensation.
The event is co-presented by NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House and funded by Culture Ireland’s Imagine Ireland Program.
The main events include:
- Seven screenings hosted by Glucksman Ireland House NYU at NYU’s Cantor Film Center.
- A ‘Meet the Filmmakers’ panel discussion co-presented by Tisch School of Arts and Irish Film New York.
- An Irish documentary showcase presentation at POV’s offices in Brooklyn.
