Irish Film Festival Ottawa, 2017 | Arts Court Theatre

This past weekend I had an awesome time photographing the Irish Film Festival in Ottawa at the Arts Court Theatre.   The events drew sold out crowds with distinguished guests such as:  Tara Lee, Irish actress and singer-songwriter; Jim Kelly, Ambassador of Ireland; and Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada, in attendance.    Among the highlights for me was learning more about Irish films; watching everyone get super excited about “Tayto” chips being on the snack menu; taking a fun group picture with all the kids in attendance; and, photographing some very talented young girls performing a few Irish dances – they can really jump and tap!   If you’re looking for images from the weekend, you can find them here on my Facebook page.

Love the Irish Colours!
