A musical trip through inner city Dublin.

This award-winning documentary travels the length of Dublin's fabled North Circular Road, where local characters share their powerful and emotive stories, accompanied by traditional ballads and folk music.

North Circular conjures the ghosts of the past while engaging with the conflicts and celebrations of today, with a spooky folk-horror mood and a little bit of Dublin humour too.

Shot in atmospheric black & white in a 4:3 aspect, the film includes performances from the newest stars of the Irish folk scene which is based in the neighborhood including Lisa O'Neill, Ian Lynch (Lankum), John Francis Flynn, Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin and a special appearance by Gemma Dunleavy (Up De Flats).

North Circular has won awards at the Dublin, Louth and IndieCork Film Festivals and made its international premiere at Sheffield DocFest.

It has been an amazing year for Irish film at QFT, with the top three film spots on our box office chart being occupied by films from the island of Ireland. To celebrate this remarkable achievement, we are bringing back seven of our favourite Irish films from 2022 so you can experience the joy one more time. View the season here.
