Capital Irish Film Festival, Irish Popcorn! And NYU D.C. present ONLINE SHORTS
2019-2020 | Drama & Documentary | Runtime: 68 minutes | English & Irish
The short film genre has been a particular favorite of Solas Nua’s audience each year at the Capital Irish Film Festival (CIFF). Often, these clever and sometimes poignant stories get overshadowed by the feature films. Join us as we give them a night to themselves.
NYU DC will be using Zoom for this screening. Register for this event, and you will receive a link to join the screening in your inbox one hour before the film begins.
