Oct. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Irish Film New York staffers knew it would be a busy opening night when they spotted an online posting from someone pleading to buy four tickets for the festival’s initial film Knuckle. The show was completely sold-out, with many turned away at the door.

“It was very gratifying to see the people cued-up for the first film of the first Irish Film New York.” IFNY organizer Niall McKay said.  “There were many with Irish connections of course, but I was impressed by how diverse the demographics of the audience were—quite a cross section of New York City.”

A full house was also on hand for Saturday’s screening of 32A and when the Q&A with writer/director Marian Quinn and her husband, producer Tommy Weir concluded, many dashed to the adjacent theater to join the crowd already seated for the New York premiere of The Runway.

Irish Film New York continues Sunday with three films on the following schedule:

·   Sun., Oct. 2  4PM     Pyjama Girls  followed by Q&A with editor Paul Rowley
·   Sun., Oct. 2  6PM    Parked,  followed by Q&A with Writer/Director Darragh Byrne
·   Sun., Oct. 2  8 PM     Sensation, followed by Q&A with Director Tom Hall

All films screen at NYU Cantor Film Center, at 36 East 8th St, New York, NY 10003.
