The IrishFilmFesta has moved from its previous November schedule and now takes place in March, ten days after St Patrick's Day.

The seventh edition of the increasingly popular festival takes place at the Casa del Cinema in Villa Borghese, and showcases feature films, documentaries and short films, and provides acting masterclasses, conferences and public interviews with special guests.

This year the competition section includes 15 short films, not the usual ten, and there will be a special day dedicated to Belfast with the screening of Good Vibrations and Made in Belfast.

Highlights of the festival include Run & Jump by Steph Green; Black Ice by Johnny Gogan; The Stag by John Butler, and Neil Jordan's film Byzantium.

All films screened in their original versions with Italian subtitles.

Entry is free but it is advisable to arrive early due to high demand for seats.
