Toronto irish film festival

Toronto gets a dose of Ireland on screen

The Toronto Irish Film Festival starts today and runs through March 2nd at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Now in its 5th year of programming, the festival is back to deliver a handful of Toronto premieres and encores of the best Irish cinema of the last year.

There is also a programme of short films to look forward to, and-somewhat bizarrely-the launch of the second season of the Irish sitcom, Moone Boy. The festival starts with the screening of the very Irish sounding film The Irish Pub. Check out the trailer below.

Tickets are on sale now via the festival web site.
