Film Festival

Looking for some fun family activities this Holiday Break?

Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister, Saoirse, who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. It is a visually stunning film that takes inspiration from Irish Folklore.

Come Opening Weekend (December 19th – 21st) to meet Tom Moore, the director of both Secret of the Kells and Song of the Sea!

International Night is coming up on Thursday, January 22nd

We are looking for volunteers to help us kick off our annual celebration of cultures and traditions from around the world!

Do you like to perform or know of any performers of international folkloric dance??  In previous years we have had Korean fan dance performers, Armenian dancers, Aztec dancers, Japanese sword performers, Capoeira artists, and many, many more!  Do you like to cook or know amazing crafts you’d like to share?

It takes a “global” village to get this party started!  The world is our oyster.  We need your help!!  Please contact Marta Molina Seal at
