Ian Fitzgibbon’s comedy thriller ‘A Film with Me in It’, will receive its world premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival, which takes place from 18th-29th June 2008.
The IFB funded film shot from October– November 2007 on location in Dublin and stars Irish comedian Dylan Moran (Run Fat Boy Run, Shaun of the Dead), Amy Huberman (The Clinic) with Aisling O'Sullivan (The Clinic), Keith Allen (Robin Hood) and Mark Doherty, who also penned the feature.
A Parallel Films production, the film tells the story of an actor hard on his luck when, through no fault of his own, he ends up with a large number of dead bodies on his hands. Himself and his friend hatch an ingenius plan of treating their predicament like a film scenario and try to rewrite the day. As the body count mounts, they pitch ideas back and forth desperately searching for a way out.
Other Irish films in the Edinburgh line-up include Declan Recks’ ‘Eden’, which will screen as part of the Rosebud category and ‘Fairytale of Kathmandu’, which will screen in the Document section.
Irish shorts in the line-up are Colm Quinn’s ‘No Regrets in The West’, Michael Fortune’s ‘Terminal Communication’ which is part of the Black Box Shorts line-up and Matthew Talbot-Kelly’s 7 minute short ‘Blind Man’s Eye - to screen in the International Animation 2 category.
