FILM PROJECT UPDATE
It's been a crazy few months and things are moving but it's such a slow process.
Since the Galway film festival premiere I have been working non-stop in the background making contacts, networking, finishing off parts of the film, creating public awareness and finding suitable international film festivalals, along with position ourselves for possible awards.
Recently some of the work being done has had some reward. The film has obtained a Sales Agent based in Vienna. Their job will be to sell the film to different regions throughout the world. It will be difficult as the market is competitive but they believe in the film.
We are delighted to be able to say that the film has just received an IFTA nomination in the category of Best Supporting Actress, for the performance by the talented Sarah Carroll. The IFTA ceremony will be on the 15th February and we are keeping our fingers crossed for Sarah.
Going forward we will continue to look for international festivals and a possible cinema release nationally. These are in the works, but nothing is certain until contracts are signed.
Until all of these run their course, the film has to remain private. Hopefully there will be more screenings during the coming months, and we will make sure to inform you all. When the film runs it's course we will be providing you all with your benefits for your generous pledgees, which without, there would not be a film. You are the reason we have a film at the IFTA's. It's a very big achievement for an unfunded film to be recognised by IFTA.
Thanks you everyone and congrats, if anyone has any questions please contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
