Four Irish Films Selected for the Tribeca Film Festival

The world premiere of Steph Green’s debut feature film ‘Run & Jump’ will take place at Robert de Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival next month, along with the screening of three other Irish films.

‘Run & Jump’ stars ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Will Forte and Maxine Peake (Shameless, Silk) and Irish actors Edward McLiam (Eastenders, Holby City) and Sharon Horgan (Death of a Superhero) also star.

The dramatic comedy follows the story of Venetia (Peake), who struggles to come to terms with the aftermath of her husband’s stroke. She soon however, finds comfort in an American researcher Ted (Forte), who has been sent to study her husband’s rare disease.

‘Run & Jump’ is Green’s debut feature following the success of her short film, ‘New Boy’, which won Best Narrative Short at Tribeca in 2009 and was nominated for an Oscar in 2009 for Best Live Action Short Film. Irish author Ailbhe Keogan wrote the script and Dublin based Samson Films co-produced the film along with German production company, Bavaria Films.

Lenny Abrahamson’s critically acclaimed and multi-award winning drama ‘What Richard Did’ will receive its US premiere at the festival and it will be screened alongside ‘Run & Jump’ and 20 other international features and documentaries in the Viewpoints section of the festival. This year, the Viewpoints section focuses on stories told from distinctly male and female perspectives.

Also making an appearance at this year’s festival is Neil Jordan’s latest film, ‘Byzantium’, which stars Irish actress Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement) and Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Song for Marion) as Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious young women who seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort after they flee the scene of a violent crime.

Irish-French co-production ‘Dark Touch’ will also receive its US premiere at this year’s festival. Starring Marcella Plunkett (Stella Days) and Padraic Delaney Delaney (The Wind that Shakes the Barley), ‘Dark Touch’ follows the story of Niamh, the lone survivor of a bloody massacre after the household objects and furniture in her family’s house go on a murderous rampage. ‘Dark Touch’, written and directed by Marina de Van, will also have the honour of opening the Midnight section of this year’s festival.

Founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert de Niro, and Craig Hatkoff as a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Tribeca Film Festival has grown into one of the most important festivals on the international calendar. It will take place in New York City from April 17th – April 28th.
