I curated and co-directed the first ever festival of Irish film in Lebanon which happened in February and March of 2012.

Together with local Nahwa al-Muwatiniya and the Irish Film Institute in Dublin, I sourced and brought over seven feature films and twelve short films for screening in Beirut's Metropolis Art Cinema.

The festival programme included: Hunger, The Butcher Boy, Bloody Sunday, Breakfast on Pluto as well as documentaries The Pipe, and Bernadette: Notes on a Political Journey.

Special guests of the festival were actor Stephen Rea and documentary director Lelia Doolan.
