Irish Screen America’s goal is to promote and support Irish filmmakers working in the US, through screenings and special events as well as through creating new connections. We hope that by the filmmakers sharing their stories and short films with a new audience at Trinity College in Dublin we can help to inspire the upcoming generation of filmmakers and story-tellers, and strengthen the connections between the film industry in Ireland and the US.

Organizers: Justin MacGregor, John Sherlock Assistant Professor at TCD; Niall McKay, Director Irish Screen America
