The ninth Capital Irish Film Festival (CIFF) brings some of the best of contemporary Irish film to Washington D.C. This year we have an exciting selection of shorts, narrative features, documentaries and even a special program of beautiful music and multimedia works. Highlights include Niall Heery's offbeat comedy Gold, Tom Collins' edgy thriller An Bronntanas (The Gift) and Lenny Abrahamson's quirky and endearing Frank starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal. This year's films shed a new light on many aspects of Irish life, history and identity that will surprise, entertain and fascinate.
