IFTA Best Film winner An Cailín Ciúin has been officially selected for the Sydney Film Festival.

The critically acclaimed Irish-language feature film will be one of 12 films competing in the Official Competition of the festival in June.

An Cailín Ciúin has also been acquired by independent Australian distributor, Madman Entertainment and will be released in cinemas across Australia and New Zealand later this year.  

"We are thrilled that An Cailín Ciúin (The Quiet Girl) has been selected as one of the 12 films in Official Competition for this year's Sydney Film Festival,” said director Colm Bairéad, speaking on the Sydney Film Festival selection and the Madman acquisition.

“What an honour! And what a beautiful way to begin the film's journey throughout Australia and New Zealand, in partnership with our wonderful distributor, Madman Entertainment," Bairéad added.

An Cailín Ciúin is being jointly released by Break Out Pictures in 60 cinemas nationwide from Thursday, May 12 and by Curzon in the UK on Friday, May 13.

The Irish-language feature film had its world premiere in February at the Berlinale film festival in Berlin where it scooped The Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury for Best Film. It was the first Irish language film to open the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival also in February and was awarded Best Irish Film by the Dublin Film Critics Circle (DFCC).

An Cailín Ciúin sweeped the boad at the most recent IFTA Film & Drama Awards, winning eight Irish Academy awards including Best Film, Best Director, and Lead Actress Film.

The film tells the story of Cáit (Catherine Clinch) - a nine year-old girl from an overcrowded, dysfunctional family who is sent away to live with her mother’s relatives for the summer. She is welcomed with open arms by Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley), but her husband (Andrew Bennett) keeps Cáit at arm’s length. Slowly, but surely, a warmth grows within this makeshift family and Cáit blossoms in their care. But in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth.

Based on the acclaimed story, Foster by Claire Keegan, An Cailín Ciúin is a complex and delicate coming-of-age drama that explores questions of family, neglect and loss through the eyes of its young protagonist.

An Cailín Ciúin is the feature film debut of writer/director, Colm Bairéad and producer, Cleona Ní Chrualaoi of Inscéal. It was shot on location in Meath and Dublin in 2020.
