EFP Selects ‘Wide Open Spaces’ For New York
11 Jun 2009 :
Wide Open Spaces
The European Film Promotion (EFP) has announced Irish film ‘Wide Open Spaces’, directed by Tom Hall (Bachelors Walk), is to be one of the four European films that is going to be screened at Tribeca Grand Hotel's screening room in New York on June 23rd at 6pm.

The initiative sees targeted industry professionals invited to the screening in New York in an effort to enhance the platform for European films seeking US distribution.

Penned by Arthur Mathews (Father Ted) and starring Ewen Bremner (Fool’s Gold), Ardal O’Hanlon (Father Ted) and Owen Roe (Alarm), ‘Wide Open Spaces’ is an international co-production between Irish company Grand Pictures (Spin the Bottle, Stew, Paths to Freedom) and Scottish company Mead Kerr (Night People).

‘Wide Open Spaces’ has claimed the prestigious place along with entries from Portugal, Belgium and The Netherlands. The 85 minute film is a belated coming of age comedy set in a remote part of Ireland about two slackers working to pay off a debt by helping to build a Famine Theme Park for a dodgy local entrepreneur. With a classic double-act at the centre, ‘Wide Open Spaces’ is a take on male friendship and how it is easier to break up with a girl than with your best friend.

Director Tom Hall has begun production in Ireland on his latest feature ‘Sensation’ which he also wrote.
