To celebrate Culture Night on Friday September 20, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) and Irish group Heathers have launched a trailer celebrating 20 years of Irish stories on film, and you can watch it on RTÉ TEN.

The new trailer - available in 90-second and extended versions - features the Heathers song Waiter on the soundtrack and includes clips from IFB-funded films over the past 20 years starring Gabriel Byrne, Colin Farrell, Fionnula Flanagan, Brendan Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson, Charlene McKenna, Cillian Murphy, Liam Neeson, Saoirse Ronan, Robert Sheehan, Pat Shortt and many more.

Among the films featured are: Intermission, Once, The Magdalene Sisters, Song for a Raggy Boy, Bloody Sunday, The Guard, I Went Down, The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Adam and Paul, Garage, Granny O'Grim and The Secret of Kells.

Ellie and Louise Macnamara of Heathers said: "We are absolutely delighted that the Irish Film Board have chosen Waiter to soundtrack their new promotional video.

"Being huge movie fans ourselves, we couldn't think of a better use for one of our songs. And we are especially proud that one of our tracks is being associated with the Irish film industry in this way."
