Irish Screen America is an annual, bicoastal film and media festival, premiering some of the best new films from Ireland in New York and Los Angeles. The annual festival holds film premieres, post-screening discussions, industry panels, networking parties and masterclasses. Irish Screen America NY will be held at the NYU Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Film Center. Irish Screen America L.A. will be held at the Aero Theatre. From 2009 to 2012, the American Cinematheque presented the Los Angeles Irish Film Festival, and we are thrilled to once again explore the nation’s cinema with Irish Screen America.

This year’s lineup reflects the diversity of contemporary Irish cinema with several outstanding features. In thriller BAD DAY FOR THE CUT, Nigel O’Neill stars as a simple farmer pushed over the edge into violence. SONG OF GRANITE takes a gentler tack to explore the life of a great traditional Irish singer, Joe Heaney. The gritty and exciting CARDBOARD GANGSTERS follows a group of young hoods in a Dublin suburb. A documentary, a shorts program and a showcase of Irish filmmakers based in Los Angeles round out the weekend.

Series compiled by Niall McKay.
