‘What Richard Did’ & ‘Silence’ Head To North America & UK With Latest Distribution Deals
18 Feb 2013 : By Eva Hall
'What Richard Did'
Irish feature films ‘What Richard Did’ and ‘Silence’ have both been snapped up by international distributors for American and UK releases.

Tribeca Films has acquired the North American rights for the multi IFTA-winning ‘What Richard Did’, while New Wave acquired the UK rights for IFTA-nominated ‘Silence’.

‘What Richard Did’, which won five IFTA Awards last weekend, will be released in North America in spring, as well as a day-and-date VOD release.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson and produced by Element Pictures, the feature was released in Ireland last year, and, following its IFTA success, re-released last week for a limited run.

Starring Jack Reynor and Roisin Murphy, ‘What Richard Did’ is an intense drama which sees golden boy Richard forced to face the consequences of his actions after one drunken night.

‘Silence’ will be released in the UK

Tribeca acquired the rights from Protagonist Pictures, which released the film in the UK earlier this year.

‘Silence’, a film that follows a sound recordist as he travels to the most remote places in Ireland to record free from man-made sound, will be released in the UK following a deal with New Wave last week.

The film, which was nominated for Best Director at last weekend’s IFTA Awards, was released in Ireland last July.

Famed documentary-maker Pat Collins directed ‘Silence’, from a script he wrote with his wife Sharon Whooley and lead actor Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhride.

Both ‘What Richard Did’ and ‘Silence’ were part-funded by the Irish Film Board.
