Williamsburg Regional Library presents the Celtic Film Series in cooperation with the local chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians.  The series explores the history, drama and quirky humor of films made in or about Ireland and the Irish. 

This season’s films are dedicated to the memory of W&M emeritus professor of English and former WRL Board member Jack Willis, who introduced many of the Celtic films from the inception of the series.
