Michael Inside Set for Canadian Premiere at Vancouver Irish Film Festival
16 Aug 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The Vancouver Irish Film Festival will host Frank Berry’s award winning drama ‘Michael Inside’ for its Canadian Premiere on Saturday, September 15th.

Vancouver Irish Film Festival (VIRFF) is Vancouver’s newest cultural event organised to celebrate the city’s vibrant Irish diaspora and showcase the best in Irish cinema.

The announcement of ‘Michael Inside’ follows on from the festival’s successful sell-out launch night of ‘The Drummer and the Keeper’, which took place in June.

 Written and directed by Frank Berry, ‘Michael Inside’ stars Dafhyd Flynn, Moe Dunford and Lalor Roddy and tells the story of Michael McCrea, an impressionable 18-year-old living with his grandfather Francis in a Dublin housing estate, who gets caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend's older brother and is sentenced to three months in prison.

The film premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh last summer where it won Best Irish Film and Dafhyd picked up the Bingham Ray New Talent Award.  Since then it's been wowing audiences and critics alike.  It picked up the IFTA for ‘Best Film’ in February, and has garnered numerous five-star reviews.  The film has already screened at a number of international festivals across the world including premieres in the UK, US, and China.

Produced by Donna Eperon, Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O'Sullivan for Subotica and Write Direction Films, the film was made with funding from the Irish Film Board.

Festival founder Àine Coady has also announced that the first VIRFF
festival will run December 5th-7th. The programme will include Irish shorts
and features at the beautiful setting of Vancity Theatre.

The VIRFF is supported by the Irish Embassy in Canada and local
Irish businesses in Vancouver.
