Welcome to the Seattle Irish Reels Film Festival 2017. Thanks to all who came out and joined us for our March Program at the Seattle Center.
Our 20th annual Festival returns to the SIFF Film Center for its fall program on Sept 30th and Oct 1st, 2017. This year the festival will kick off with a special 20th Anniversary Gala celebration co-hosted by Irish Network Seattle at The Ruins, 570 Roy St. on Sept 29th starting at 6pm. Tickets are available through Irish Network Seattle.
Feature films in this year's festival are Emerald City and Song of Granite (Ireland's selection for best foreign-language film at the 2018 Oscars). Two exceptional, not to be missed documentaries are Mattress Men and In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America. An exciting new addition to our shorts programming is GAZE on Tour featuring five new short films from the 25th anniversary of the GAZE film festival.
Confirmed visiting filmmakers are Alan Maher, Producer, Song of Granite and Michael Moody Culpepper, Director, 3 Friends, (Best Irish Short: GAZE Int'l Film Festival 2017).
We hope you will join us as we celebrate 20 years of bringing refreshing and exciting new works in Irish cinema to Northwest audiences.
