Actor Liam Neeson narrates new giant-screen film 'Ireland'

An exciting new giant-screen documentary film called Ireland will go on release in select IMAX and giant-screen theatres across the United States in February 2022. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the film has been sponsored by Tourism Ireland. 

Produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films, Ireland will celebrate the rich history, culture, arts and music of the country, as well as the spectacular scenery. It will take audiences across the island of Ireland, following writer Manchán Magan and others on an action-packed journey from Dublin to Belfast and from Kilkenny to Cong. Viewers will see breath-taking footage of places like the Cliffs of Moher, the Giant’s Causeway and the Skellig Islands.

The release of Ireland will, it is hoped, play a significant part in the recovery of tourism from the United States next year. MacGillivray Freeman Films is the world’s foremost independent producer and distributor of original giant-screen 70mm films and Ireland is expected to be seen by millions of people across the United States – helping to inspire them to put the island of Ireland on their holiday wish-list for 2022.

A previous film produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films for Brand USA (destination marketing organisation for the United States), called Natural Parks Adventure, was seen by around 8 million people in IMAX and giant-screen theatres. A trailer for the new film is available to view above.

Niall Gibbons, Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, the organisation responsible for promoting the island of Ireland overseas as a leading holiday destination, said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted to be announced as the global sponsor of the new giant screen documentary film ‘Ireland’, narrated by our own Liam Neeson.

"With the international release of the film set to take place in February, it comes at an ideal time for us as we restart travel to the island of Ireland. It will play a significant part in the recovery of tourism from the United States. The film will be seen by millions of viewers in IMAX and giant screen theatres, shining a spotlight on our rich history, culture and heritage and our spectacular scenery.”

Liam Neeson said: “There is a movement in Ireland to reconnect with our heritage, to rediscover what it means to be Irish, and I am delighted to help bring the joy and diversity of all that Ireland has to offer, both the old and the new, to IMAX and giant-screen audiences worldwide. As viewers experience Ireland’s great beauty and humanity on the world’s largest screens, they will fall in love all over again.”

Janet Redler, Chief Executive of Janet Redler Travel & Tourism, added: “The trailer for this new film is wonderful and the giant-screen movie is sure to wow audiences in the USA. Like everyone in the industry, we’re hoping that international travel will once again begin to return to near normal levels in 2022, after two very difficult years. This film will help to ensure that Ireland is once again top of people’s bucket list, and we look forward to returning with our groups soon.”
