Festival 2017

Shebeen Flick Irish Film Festival 2017 took place on 16th-19th March in Kino Moviemento in Berlin and on 20th March in Souterrain Kino-Keller in Düsseldorf.

Our programme opened to submissions for the first time and the response was overwhelmingly positive. As a result, we have doubled the size of last year’s programme to a total of 26 films and discovered some great new talent.

Some of the highlights of the festival included the German Premieres of HISTORY’S FUTURE and A DATE FOR MAD MARY. Both screenings were attended by guests: lead actor Mark O’Halloran and Director Darren Thornton.
