6a00d8341c392053ef01310f634168970c-800wi.jpgThe 12th annual Irish Film Festival, Boston, starts Thursday and runs through Sunday. The largest film festival of its kind outside of Ireland, it was named one of the "20 coolest" festivals by Moviemaker magazine last fall. Screenings will be at the Stuart Street Playhouse and Somerville Theatre. In addition to features, this year's programming includes documentaries, shorts, and animation. The festival opens with "Parked," which might best be described as a menage a car, starring Colm Meaney. It concludes with a documentary that couldn't be more fitting, "Blazing the Trail: The O'Kalems in Ireland," about the first fiction films to be made in Ireland, back in the early 1910s. No less fitting, the concluding-festival party will be at The Burren, in Davis Square.
