Film Festival

Located at Musical Theater Heritage on the Third Floor in Crown Center


The Kansas City Irish Festival is proud to announce the inaugural edition of the Kansas City Irish Film Festival, curated by KC-based film production company Elk's Pride Pictures and sponsored by Musical Theater Heritage.  Mr. Matthew Dunehoo of Elk's Pride was approached with the idea of curating a festival of films by Ronan Collins, who is responsible for programming the comedy component of the fest.  The mix of short and feature films programmed herein vary by genre, but are all similar in that they each either have themes pertaining to life in Ireland, were filmed in Ireland or were written and directed by Irish citizens living abroad.  Mr. Dunehoo currently curates the FIRST FRIDAY FILM FESTIVAL, a recurring short film festival every first Friday, headquartered at MTH and featuring short film work from KC-area filmmakers and that of filmmakers from around the world.  He would like to extend a special thanks to Ms. Maggie Fagan of Tile Films in Ireland, and Ms. Eileen Bell of Enterprise Ireland for their assistance in curating this year's program for KCIFF.
