Alvin Sherman Library and CAHSS to Host the 10th Annual Irish Film Festival


The NSU Alvin Sherman Library and the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences will sponsor an Irish Film Festival that allows a South Florida audience to see independent contemporary Irish films not widely released in the U.S. This year’s lineup includes three films. The first screening is on November 13 and the series ends on November 19.

The Festival, now in its tenth year, was the brainchild of Professor David Kilroy, a native of Ireland and a faculty member in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Working with the Irish Film Institute in Dublin, Professor Kilroy has been able to secure a wide array of films over the years, from cutting edge dramas to hard-nosed documentaries, representing the work of some of Ireland’s most exciting filmmakers.

The Irish Film Festival is co-sponsored by the South Florida Irish Studies consortium. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact David Kilroy at
