Toronto Irish Film Festival - March 6, 2011

Here is an event of which I knew nothing about. It sounds like a great day of Irish film in Toronto!  This news, just in from Michael Barry, co-founder of the Toronto Irish Film Festival. 

"We are knee-deep in plans for Sunday March 6th, securing wonderful Irish films for this year's festival at the new TIFF Bell Lightbox building in the city. You can find us at for more information and links to our Facebook group and Twitter feed."

Michael is also the composer of, and musician on, "My Irish Heart", which is a lovely tune. The song was specifically for an upcoming documentary by Eleanor McGrath entitled "Kanata: An Irish Story" which details, through many interviews, the Irish Canadian immigrant experience. It is a wonderful film and is expected to begin its film festival circuit in the Spring of 2011. The tune is available on iTunes (where the track can be sampled and purchased) at the direct link:

The single cover for the song is shown here in the photograph.
