IrishFilmFesta honours Peter O'Toole

Actress Kate O'Toole is festival's guest of honour 

The IrishFilmFesta will pay tribute to Peter O'Toole, the much-loved Irish actor of film and theatre who died last December aged 81.

His daughter, actress Kate O'Toole, is guest of honour at the seventh edition of the festival, and will take part in a public interview, her first since her father passed away. 

Born in Connemara in the west of Ireland in 1932, O'Toole shot to international fame for his starring role in David Lean's epic Lawrence of Arabia in 1963, followed by films such as The Lion in Winter (1968), Goodbye, Mr Chips (1969), The Ruling Class (1972), The Stunt Man (1980) and Venus (2006).

Despite being nominated eight times, O'Toole never received an Oscar, however in 2003 the Academy bestowed upon him a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The IrishFilmFesta takes place from 27-30 March at the Casa del Cinema in the Via Veneto corner of Villa Borghese.
