Now in its 18th year, the Irish Reels Film Festival kicks off on Friday night, September 25th, at 6:00pm at the SIFF Film Center with an Opening Night Gala Reception co-hosted by Irish Network Seattle. At 7:30pm our feature presentation is the highly acclaimed Patrick's Day, Terry McMahon's provocative and heart-warming love story in which Moe Dunford's performance earned him the Shooting Star Award at the Berlin Film Festival. The feature will be preceded by the award winning short Céad Ghrá.
The weekend festival also features a Special Senior Presentation on Saturday of John Ford: Dreaming the Quiet Man and on Sunday a Special Family Presentation of the Academy Award nominated feature Song of the Sea.
Check out the complete program of new and award winning shorts documentaries and features and get your tickets today! Our closing night film is Gerard Barrett's second feature Glassland. One of the most critically lauded films at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the film garnered raves for its two leads, Toni Collette and Jack Reynor, the latter's performance earning him a Special Jury Prize.
Festival passes and individual tickets can be purchased through SIFF Film Center and at the box office 30 minutes before each show time.
