Louise Dylan stars in 'Beat Girl'
Irish feature film ‘Beat Girl’ will be released in cinemas in Ireland, the UK and Portugal, after Content Media snapped up the distribution rights.

The film, which stars Louise Dylan as Heather, a classical pianist whose music brings her on a life journey, has already been making waves internationally with its webisodes and Pinterest board.

Content Media will now distribute the film in three European territories.

The ‘Beat Girl’ story was developed into a multiplatform project by Irish-Portuguese production company beActive. ‘Beat Girl’ was developed into a feature film, a TV series, online webisodes called ‘The Beat Girl Diaries’, and a Pinterest project, all adapted from Irish writer Jasmina Kallay’s novel of the same name.

Recently, the ‘Beat Girl’ Pinterest board, which was the world’s first ever scripted series on the social networking site, was named number eight on Pinterest’s key influencers list, beating Barack Obama, who came in at number nine.

The webisodes have been viewed more than one million times online, with its original music attracting well known DJs such as Paul Oakenfold and Jenny Greene.

Irish director Mairtín de Barra directed the feature, with Triona Campbell and Nuno Bernardo producing. Bernardo, Susana Tavares and Melanie Martinez wrote the script.

Speaking in Dublin, producer Campbell said: “’Beat Girl’ is an incredible success story for us, it was a small project that we believed in, but really struggled to find funding for, and it is now succeeding against all the odds as people all over the world are starting to embrace it.

“People just really like this story, love the music, and are really relating to the character of Heather - beating Barack Obama as a key influencer on Pinterest does however blow our minds.”

‘Beat Girl – The Movie’ will be released in May 2013 in Ireland, the UK and Portugal. See the trailer for the film below:

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
Over €4.6m allocated by Creative Europe to Irish screen industry in 2021
