BOSTON SPRINGS A FETHIVAL: Irish Film Festival Daily – Day One

IFF_SHEEP_Logo-300x2414The 2014 edition of Boston’s Irish Film Festival gets underway this evening at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, running through this Sunday, March 23. eCinemaBoston and Indie Film Spotlight will be bringing you daily schedules and film coverage throughout the weekend.

Things get started with RUN AND JUMP, this years’ Best Breakthrough Feature winner from the festival, at 7:30 PM. Directed by Academy Award nominee Steph Green and featuring Saturday Night Live star Will Forte, this life-affirming film embraces the healing power of love and family in all of its idiosyncratic forms.

It plays with this years Most Inspiring Best Short winner, VOLKSWAGEN JOE, a political drama set in a small border‐town during the height of ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. Faced with an impossible decision, a conflicted border-town mechanic is forced to make a choice that will change his life forever.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the Somerville Theatre box office or through the festival website,
