The Irish Film Festival, which was scheduled for March 19 through 22 at the Somerville Theatre, has been postponed to November 19 through 22 due to the uncertainty amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The executive director of the festival, Dawn Morrissey, released the following statement.
“Due to the uncertainty of the evolving situation regarding COVID 19, the Irish Film Festival that was scheduled for March 19 though 22, 2020 at the Somerville Theatre has been postponed until November 19 through 22, 2020.
