The 5th Annual South Side Irish Parade Film Festival returns on Saturday, March 7 at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St. The festival celebrates Irish culture with screenings of “The Secret of Kells” at 3pm and the feature film “Odd Man Out” at 7pm. Before the feature film a pre-show reception with traditional Irish music will be held. Following the screening of “Odd Man Out” will be an after-party with drinks, dancing, and music from local band A Week Back.

The South Side Irish Parade Film Fest is an annual festival that commemorates Irish film ahead of the South Side Irish Parade. Entering its 5th year, the event explores Irish culture through the lens of cinema with each movie celebrating Irish directors, creators, and stories of Irish-American and Irish people. Previous movies have included “Song of the Sea”, “Life is Short”, “The Boxer”, “Black ‘47”, and more. The festival is chaired by Julia McSweeney and organized by members of the South Side Irish Parade Committee and the Beverly Arts Center.
“The Secret of Kells” is a 2009 animated, fantasy film directed by Tomm Moore and co-directed by Nora Twomey. The story follows a young boy in a remote medieval outpost under siege. One day the boy is beckoned to adventure when a master illuminator arrives with an ancient book. The movie features Evan McGuire (Brendan), Christen Mooney (Aisling), Brendan Gleeson (Abbot Cellach), and Mick Lally (Aidan). It was nominated for several awards including Best Irish Film at the Dublin Film Critics Circle Awards and Best Animated Feature Film at the Academy Awards.
“Odd Man Out” is a 1947 film-noir classic directed by Carol Reed. Set in an unnamed Northern Irish city, the movie follows a wounded Irish nationalist leader as he attempts to evade police after a failed robbery in Belfast. Starring James Mason (Johnny McQueen), Robert Newton (Lukey), and Cyril Cusack (Pat), the movie went on to win a BAFTA Award for Best British Film.
A Week Back is a local group from Oak Lawn featuring Chuck Murphy and John Ciciora, with occasional guest musicians. The musicians are known for their blend of acoustic and electric while playing everything from rock hits to originals. The band has played all over the Chicagoland area including the South Side Irish Parade Film Fest, Reggie’s, and more.
Tickets for the matinee of “The Secret of Kells” are $6 ($5 for BAC Members). Tickets for “Odd Man Out” are $18 ($16 for BAC Members) and include admission to the post-show festivities. All tickets can be purchased at the Beverly Arts Center Box Office on the corner of 111th and Western, via phone at 773-445-3838, or online at beverlyartcenter.org.
