'A Date for Mad Mary' Opens TIRFF Festival
The 2017 IFTA Best Film opens the TIRFF festival (Friday, March 2nd Sunday March 4th, 2018) at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

The festival highlights a wide range of films from award-winning features, documentaries and family-friendly animated films. The weekend festival has North American and Canadian premieres, short film and documentary showcases and very special guests. The Opening Night Gala on Friday, March 2nd features the Toronto premiere of A Date for Mad Mary by director Darren Thornton.

“This year, we’re delighted to showcase films that directly address the pertinent issues of today’s world, including same-sex relationships, mental health and delicate political negotiation. Framed within the unique Irish perspective, we’re once again reminded that Ireland is a nation rich in the art of compelling storytelling“, said Michael Barry, Co-founder & Director of Marketing and Communications.

Other titles screening over the three day festival including ‘The Breadwinner’, ‘Maze’ (Stephen Burke) ‘Zoo’ (Colin McIver) ‘George Best, All By Himself’ (Daniel Gordon), and the closing night film, ‘In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America’ (Maurice Fitzpatrick).

The shorts programme includes ‘Departure (Aoife Doyle), ‘The Climb (Lynne Davison), Homecoming (Sinead O’Loughlin), The Date (Selina Cartmell), Throwline (Mia Mullarkey), and The Widow’s Last (Vanessa Perdriau).

Now in its 8th year, the Toronto Irish Film Festival celebrates the very best of Irish cinema and promotes the work of Irish filmmakers to the Greater Toronto Irish community and the Toronto film festival public. With sold-out screenings from 2010 to 2017, TIRFF has assumed the role of leading promoter of Irish film within Canada. Reaching a potential audience of 250,000 Torontonians of Irish descent, as well as millions of Toronto-based movie lovers, TIRFF provides a unique cultural destination for Toronto and Ontario based ex-patriots, from the very old and the very new, to connect with the culture of home through the magic of cinema.
