Belfast Film Festival is delighted to honour the screen work of Brid Brennan with their Realta award for outstanding contribution to cinema. Join Brid for this in-conversation event which spans her extensive career.
Over the past four decades, the Belfast-born actor has worked on some of the UK and Ireland's finest theatre and television productions, from playing the put-upon Lorna in Graham Reid's Belfast-set series of Billy plays in the early 1980s through to her role as Agnes in the original production of Dancing at Lughnasa - for which she won a Tony award.
She also appeared in Mike Leighs Four Days in July, Anne Devlin, the romance Trojan Eddie with Stephen Rea and Topsy-Turvy. A host of standout performances in the 2000s onward included Shadow Dancer and Brooklyn and our gala screening at this years festival Doineann.
Join in celebration of one of Ireland's Greatest screen talents.
