Event Details

New Boy - Directed by Steph GreenNew Boy Film Poster

Nominated for an Academy Award and based on a short story by Man Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle, this poignant and comedic short deftly captures the experience of being the new boy in school through the eyes of Joseph, a nine year old African boy.   (2007, 11 mins)


Run & Jump - Directed by Steph Green

Run & Jump follows Vanetia Casey, the spirited and impossibly optimistic center of the Casey family, who is struggling to get life back to normal after her 38 year-old husband, Conor, suffers a rare stroke which changes his personality. Entering the emotional fray is buttoned-up American doctor, Ted Fielding, who arrives in Ireland to stay wiRun & Jump Film Posterth them for two months: his research grant providing the Caseys with essential financial aid. Vanetia's a dynamo, but with two young kids and both men in the house, she's feeling bombarded and initially treats Ted and his study of Conor with resistance. Only when she observes Ted's calming influence on the family does she begin to value his friendship. In return, Ted enjoys her heady, happy-go-lucky world. But Ted's continued presence in the house sets the family on course for an emotional collision. An authentic, unconventional love story and an intimate family portrait, Run & Jump is the feature film debut of Steph Green. Co-presented with the Mill Valley Film Festival (2013, 102 mins)


The screenings will be followed by a Q&A session with the director, and the Opening Night Gala Party co-hosted by the Irish Consulate and Northern Irish Connections.
