They say the Irish brogue is the most melodic, enticing accent heard across the globe! Well, I don’t know if that’s true, sounds like a rumor any one from my family members might have started, frankly. I only bring it up because it’s nearly St. Paddy’s, and the following list of movies are amazing all year long to feed your voice acting read like nothing else.

And so, it is with great Celtic pride I bring you Kate’s Unofficial Irish Film Festival. As in years passed this is as unofficial as a film festival gets—because like most things Irish, it’s DIY. (Oh, sure I can write the book, but it’s up to you to read it.)

So, go ahead celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all week long with a few really great movies you probably never heard of and I’m confident you’ll enjoy! And I’m super picky.

If you have seen them before, I’m sure you’ll agree they’re well worth seeing again.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to punch your brother in the nose… but in a good way. It’s tradition. We’re all Irish on St. Paddy’s, whether you think you are or not. So, revel in your nationality, and, even if you don’t have a drop of Irish blood in you, consider yourself among the Fraternal Order of Irishmen, also known as “FOOI” (pronounced ‘foo-ee’). We’re lucky to have you!
