Kieron J. Walsh's 'Jump' Receives LA Release this Dec
04 Dec 2013 :

With success in New York, Palm Springs, and Ireland’s own IFTA event under his belt, Kieron J. Walsh is set to see his comic crime thriller ‘Jump’ unleashed upon Hollywood audiences in L.A.’s Arena Cinema this Friday, December 6th.

Starring Nichola Burley (‘Street Dance’, ‘Wuthering Heights’), Martin McCann (‘The Pacific’), Richard Dormer (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Good Vibrations’), Charlene McKenna (‘Raw’, ‘Ripper Street’) and Ciaran MacMenamin (‘One Hundred Mornings’), ‘Jump’ follows four young Derry natives whose lives collide one fateful New Year’s Eve in what the filmmakers dub as ‘a night of fast talk, wild coincidence and intrigue’.

Mr Walsh, who will attend Q&A sessions after the Dec 6th & 7th screenings, said: ‘I am thrilled that Jump is being released in the U.S. The film played very well as U.S. festivals in Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Seattle and Dallas, so I am hopeful that it will connect with U.S. audiences.”

Based on the play of the same name by Lisa McGee (‘Raw’, ‘London Irish’), ‘Jump’ was co-written and directed by Walsh and shot in Belfast and Derry. Premiering in Toronto, the feature has gone on to garner awards such as Best Feature at Irish Film New York 2012 and the Bridging the Borders Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival 2013.

Now the film is set for wide release to American audiences, the initial Hollywood screenings on December 6th and 7th to be followed by DVD and video-on-demand release, handled by Breaking Glass Pictures.

Produced by Hotshot Films and Blinder Films with support from Northern Ireland Screen, the Irish Film Board, BBC Northern Ireland Limelight and Molinaire, ‘Jump’ opened across Irish cinemas in April of this year.
