Richard Harris International Film Festival
Location: Limerick City
Dates: 22nd to the 28th of October
Richard Harris International Film Festival was born to celebrate the unique talent of Richard Harris, in the city where he was born and raised. The festival will showcase high-quality content including feature and short films chosen from international entries (with priority given to entries from the Irish Diaspora), a Richard Harris retrospective screening and the winner of SFF Oddalenia Dublin (Polish Film Festival). This year it will incorporate a new music strand and iMet, a vibrant summit dedicated to VR/AM/MR technologies, interactive storytelling and creative collaboration. The two festivals are supported by Limerick City and County Council through the Global Irish Festival Series fund.
