Richard Harris International Film Festival 2017 Call for Submissions. Pictured in 2016 the RHIFF Festival hosted a Live Script Reading of the screenplay for Pirate Queen – the story of Grace O’Malley – in front of a live audience in the Belltable Arts Centre, Limerick.
The Richard Harris International Film Festival 2017 is based in Limerick City, home of legendary actor Richard Harris.
The RHIFF has grown since Zeb and Sylvia Moore of The Magic Roundabout Theatre Company and team of volunteers first established it in 2013.

The primary purpose is the promotion of relevant industry talent in the Mid-West overseas, with special regard to Cannes and California.
