This week’s Festival Film Flashback to stream comes from 2015. As the Troubles hit 1970s Belfast, young rebel and music lover Terri Hooley opens a record shop in the most bombed half-mile of Europe. He gathers a motley crew to bring his city back to life - whatever else is happening. Based on a true story, Good Vibrations is a great flick with heart, soul and very, very good sounds. Perfect to round up a rainy weekend.

The Camino Voyage is up there with the most loved of all Irish films we’ve screened. From Irish Film Festival 2019, it has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score, and features Danny Sheehy and Glen Hansard among others. A crew including a writer, two musicians, an artist and a stonemason embark on the Camino by sea, in a curragh they built themselves. They chart an inspiring and dangerous 2,500km Celtic odyssey from Ireland to Northern Spain. English and as Gaeilge. This #IrishFilmAtHome will make your weekend better… Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW4WJbHy86A iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/au/movie/the-camino-voyage/id1498446644?ign-mpt=uo%3D4.

As we closely watch the tentative reopening of cinemas in NSW, most of us are still home for the sofa screenings. This week’s #IrishFilmAtHome is humorous romp, The Young Offenders. If you’re from Cork, know someone from Cork or just want to wrap your ears around a serious accent; settle in and watch the film that inspired the ABC iView series. From IrishFilmFestival 2017.
