IrelandWeek Regrettably Postponed Amidst Screen Writers / SAG Strike

Los Angeles, CA (August 3, 2023) — IrelandWeek, the highly anticipated annual series of events that celebrate Irish Music, Movies, Business, Technology, and all sectors of the arts, announces with great regret postponing October’s event. The decision comes in response to the ongoing Screen Writers / SAG strike, which has impacted our ability to host events involving TV Studios, celebrating movies, and actors.

Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston, two-time Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell, Emmy Award winners Chris O’Dowd and Fionnula Flanagan, multi-platinum artist Hozier, and multiple Emmy Award nominee Roma Downey, are IrelandWeek event patrons.

IrelandWeek has been a long-standing platform for showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Ireland and promoting its talents on an international stage. We take immense pride in curating diverse events that bring together artists, musicians, filmmakers, and technology enthusiasts from all corners of the world. However, the unforeseen challenges posed by the Screen Writers / SAG strike have forced us to make some difficult choices.

The affected events were designed to provide a unique opportunity for attendees to experience the magic of TV Studios, engage with their favorite actors, and celebrate the art of cinema. In light of the current strike situation, we believe that postponing these events is the most responsible course of action to ensure the satisfaction of our participants and stakeholders.

IrelandWeek’s organizers are in continuous communication with all relevant parties to monitor the situation closely. We remain committed to finding alternative solutions and rescheduling these events once the strike concludes or a suitable resolution is reached.

Despite the unavoidable postponements, IrelandWeek will continue to host a wide array of captivating events across various other sectors of the arts.

We sincerely apologize to all the attendees, artists, sponsors, and partners who were eagerly looking forward to the affected events. Your support and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind the success of IrelandWeek, and we assure you that we are doing everything in our capacity to bring back these events once the situation permits.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been part of IrelandWeek’s journey, and we remain hopeful that we will overcome these challenges together. Let us stand in solidarity with the talented individuals of the entertainment industry during this time of uncertainty.

About IrelandWeek

Having originally been pencilled in for a regular scheduling post of November 2021, pandemic uncertainty and questions around U.S. travel restrictions meant the organisers pushed the series of Arts, Cultural and Business mixers back to May 2022. The series of events will run from 11th May – 23rd May across various venues in Los Angeles.

IrelandWeek live from Los Angeles aims to continue to showcase where Ireland excels, in the fields of Entertainment, Arts, Culture, Tourism, Tech, Food, Fashion & Business. New challenges, new ways of communicating and new ambitions have transformed our approach to IrelandWeek, now planning its fourth iteration.

Many of IrelandWeek’s firm favourite events will return such as the Music From Ireland Showcase, The Irish Theatre readings and much much more, as well as announcing a new anchor event, “The Ireland Connects Networking showcase” an entertainment b2b event where Irish and U.S. leaders from Entertainment, Tech, Arts, Business and Culture will connect and do business.

Once again, this year will see dozens of events happening across Los Angeles, covering Live music, Theatre, Visual Art, Film and TV, Sport, and Animation as well a many other areas of interest not just to the Irish diaspora here in Los Angeles, but to those keen on doing business in these fields in Ireland.
