The Irish Film Festival London has announced Lenny Abrahamson as their new Patron.
Lenny Abrahamson said: “I am a big fan of the festival and the opportunities they’re providing for Irish filmmakers in the UK. They are bringing the best of contemporary Irish film to audiences in London and I’m proud to be a part of what they’re accomplishing.”
Festival Director Kelly O’Connor said, “We couldn’t be happier for Lenny as he receives this well deserved international appreciation.
“We love Lenny’s work and have had the privilege of screening all of his films over the years. After our preview screening of Room at our most recent festival last November, he enchanted our audience with a live full screen Skype Q&A at the Rio Cinema in Dalston.
“He has always been very supportive of us and we are thrilled to welcome him on board as a Patron”.
Abrahamson joins London-based casting director Ros Hubbard who is also a Patron of the festival.
