IFI Director Sarah Glennie announced the season saying “Jim Sheridan’s exceptional body of work has not only been recognised domestically but has proven itself on the international stage many times. He has become a key figure in shaping the world’s perception of Ireland and its diaspora. We are thrilled and honoured to be working so closely with him and so many of his collaborators in presenting this season focusing on the highlights of his career.”

In addition to screenings of Sheridan’s film Jim Sheridan: In Focus will feature a special public conversation with Jim and his brother Peter on February the 5th at 4.30pm. Many of the film screenings will be attended by, introduced by or feature discussions with Jim and some of his key collaborators including Peter and Kirsten Sheridan, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh O’Conor and Brenda Fricker.
