The Runway is Premiering at the Irish Film Festival Boston on Friday, March 25

The 12th annual  Irish Film Festival Boston (March 24-27) continues its film festival tonight, February 25,  with a showing of Runway, directed by Ian Power, at the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, Somerville, at 7:30 p.m.

The film is inspired by the true story of a South American pilot who crashed his plane near Mallow, Co. Cork in 1983. Against all odds, the people of the town came together to build a runway to get him home and briefly caught the imagination of the nation.

Check out the Festival schedule of great new films being shown at this year's Irish Film Festival Boston.
