October / November 2012

Anjelica Huston has an enduring connection to Ireland. She spent much of her childhood on her father John Huston’s estate in Galway, St. Clerans, and starred in his last film, an adaptation of James Joyce’s short story The Dead.

On November 1, NUI Galway, home to the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, will honor Huston, who can currently be seen in in the hit TV show Smash, with a dinner in New York City, held by the Galway University Foundation. The 6th annual NUI Galway Gala dinner will also celebrate NUI Galway alum Michael P. Higgins, managing director and head of US Real Estate Finance at CIBC World Markets, and will feature a special performance by Moya Brennan and Clannad. Proceeds from the dinner will support the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, which was founded in 2003 under the patronage of the Huston family.
