Irish Screen America announces 2016 Programme
29 Aug 2016 : Katie McNeice
The Los Angeles leg of the festival runs from September 22nd-25th, with the New York leg scheduled for September 30th-October 2nd, with the support of Glucksman House Ireland.

The Los Angeles line-up includes Toronto International Film Festival screener ‘Handsome Devil’ from John Butler, with Butler and producers Rob Walpole and Rebecca O’Flanagan in attendance for a Q&A session.

On the New York front, iconic Irish documentary ‘The Queen of Ireland’ is set to open with Panti Bliss and Director Conor Horgan also lined up for a conversation with audiences on the night.

Additional titles include ‘Mammal’ from IFTA 2016 Rising Star nominee Rebecca Daly, which also recently made the Feature Film Selection for the European Film Awards alongside Lenny Abrahamson’s ‘Room’. Simon Dixon’s ‘Tiger Raid’ is also set to screen alongside Tom Ryan’s recent ‘Twice Shy’, and Ryan set to be honoured with Irish Screen America’s inaugural Rising Star Award.

Festival Director Niall McKay stated:
“When we saw Twice Shy at the Galway Film Fleadh, we recognised it as the kind of truly independent production Irish Screen America was founded to support and this award is our way of announcing to our peers in New York and Los Angeles that Tom Ryan is one to watch.”

The first two episodes of RTÉ 2’s upcoming drama series ‘Can’t Cope, Wont’ Cope’ starring Seana Kerslake (A Date For Mad Mary) and Nika McGuigan (Philomena) also features in the 2016 programme. Director Cathy Brady and Producer Ailish McElmeel will be present at the show’s premiere in both New York and Los Angeles to discuss its use of female talent and portrayal of female characters.
