Dingle International Film Festival (Dingle IFF) is proud to announce that Jim Sheridan—director of MY LEFT FOOT (1989), THE FIELD (1990), INTO THE WEST (1992), IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER (1993), THE BOXER (1997), and IN AMERICA (2003)—will be in attendance to close our 2017 festival with his new film SECRET SCRIPTURE (2016), to be screened in the Phoenix Cinema on 26th March 2017. The film includes a fantastic, international-renowned cast and an exceptional script from Sheridan and the late Johnny Ferguson.
Jim Sheridan has been directing and producing Irish classics for nearly 30 years, and his contributions to the Irish film industry have yet to be matched. His latest film, THE SECRET SCRIPTURE (2016), is a welcome addition to his long list of masterpieces that captured the imagination of the nation.
Sheridan has a proud association with the Dingle IFF and has appeared as a guest several times. In 2009, Sheridan was the recipient of that year’s Gregory Peck Award: For Excellence in the Art of Film. Jim also presented The Gregory Peck Award in Dingle to Laura Dern. Festival director Maurice Galway welcomes Sheridan’s return to this year’s festival with open arms—“I had the pleasure of welcoming Jim to Dingle on three other occasions, and I am delighted to welcome him back again.”
