If you missed the St. Patrick’s Day fun, take heart. After a one-year hiatus, the Irish Film Festival Boston will run March 20-23 at the Somerville Theatre. About 30 films will be screened at the event, which includes receptions with visiting Irish filmmakers and cocktail parties. On opening night, director and Academy Award nominee Steph Green and actress Ruth McCabe (“Philomena”) are scheduled to accept the Best Breakthrough Feature award for “Run & Jump,” along with director Brian Deane of “Volkswagen Joe,” who will get the award for “Most Inspiring Best Short.”

Dawn Morrissey, festival director, said they received an "unprecedented number of film submissions this time around and the quality of the work is going from strength to strength, from examining the current crisis in Ireland to a life-affirming film starring celebrity comedian Will Forte."

The theater is in Somerville’s Davis Square, and tickets for screenings run from $11-$15, with an all-access pass offered for $85. The festival is said to be the biggest of its kind, outside of Ireland. For full information and listings, visit www.irishfilmfestival.com
