  • Delighted to get our film 'HOME' selected for the 2022 Festival. 'Toronto Irish Film Festival' were incredibly supportive throughout the whole process. And they run a fantastic event every year. Looking forward to attending the festival in the future!

    Great festival, and well-attended (especially for a weekend-afternoon shorts showcase!) at one of the best theatres in the city. John and Michael were super accommodating, too!

    This is a great festival. The festival directors are very friendly and made me feel very welcome. They hosted opening and closing receptions so there were many opportunities to meet and engage with people. At the screenings, they invited filmmakers to speak. With the quality of the films scheduled and the screenings taking place at the TIFF Lightbox theater in Toronto, it was a huge honour to be included. I strongly recommend this festival.

    I was disappointed that I couldn't attend the festival, but felt included throughout and very much part of the event. A colleague attended on my behalf and said he felt like he was back home for the afternoon and loved every minute. Michael was great to deal with and hopefully, if my next work is selected, I will be in a position to travel over - I hope so!! Thanks to Michael and all the team!
