The Sydney Young Leaders hosted a special pre-Oscars screening of Brooklyn in Sydney on Thursday 25 February.
We were thrilled to have such great attendance and support at the event and what a lovely film to experience together. Brooklyn definitely deserves the plaudits it’s getting and if our happy (and slightly teary) audience had a say, we’re sure that the Brooklyn team would have walked away with a few Oscars under their belts.
Thanks again to our sponsors, Tourism Ireland and Currency Fair for their support.
We were especially grateful to author Colm Toibin and producer Finola Dwyer for their personal messages to us, which made the night all the more special.
Sydney and Melbourne together raised over $7,000 for our charities. Thanks to you all for your support.
Don’t forget our next event, our Corporate breakfast with Ciaran Davis on 13 April. Tickets are on sale now. And please do also check out the program for the Irish Film Festival in April.
