Acclaimed Irish Director Jim Sheridan was on hand in New York in September for the NYC premiere of his new film The Secret Scripture, based on the Sebastian Barry novel of the same name, and starring Rooney Mara.

The film was part of the 2017 Irish Screen America film series. The annual Irish filmmakers showcase takes place every September in Los Angeles and New York City.

“We are invigorated by the show of support from our audiences – both in New York and Los Angeles. It reaffirms our mission statement and demonstrates the demand in the U.S. for contemporary, indigenous Irish representation in our theatres,” said Niall McKay, Irish Screen America’s executive director and programmer.

The festival bestowed its inaugural Jim Sheridan Award for Achievement in Irish Filmmaking to Mark O’Connor, director of four independently produced Irish features released in the past five years, including 2017’s highest-grossing Irish film, Cardboard Gangsters. ♦
