Ivan Kavanagh’s ‘The Canal’ to have World Premiere at Tribeca
07 Mar 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Park Films are delighted to announce that their upcoming horror feature, ‘The Canal’ will have its world premiere at the opening weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. The feature was directed and written by Ivan Kavanagh and stars Rupert Evans (‘Hellboy’) and IFTA nominee Antonia Campbell-Hughes (‘3096 Days’, ‘Albert Nobbs’).

An Irish, British, Dutch co-production, the film marks writer/director Ivan Kavanagh’s third production with Park Films after ‘Tin Can Man’ and ‘The Fading Light’. ‘The Canal’ was produced by Anne Marie Naughton for Park Films with Treasure Entertainment’s Rebecca O’ Flanagan and Robert Walpole as executive producers.

It was co-produced by Vaughan Sivell and Sander Verdonk, with Piers McGrail (‘Kelly + Victor’, ‘Grassland’) as cinematographer, editing by Robin Hill (‘Sightseers’) and sound design by Aza Hand ('Controra', 'Gold'). Egg Post Production produced picture and sound. Shot in Dublin during summer 2013, it received funding from the IFB and Section 481.

‘The Canal’ tells the story of a family which consists of a mother, father and young son who move into a period house by a canal. David (played by Evans) suspects his wife, Alice, is cheating on him. He also starts to have frightening visions of a haunting presence in the house.

Kavanagh has stated, “We hope ‘The Canal’ can be watched and re-watched, and the events can be debated and interpreted in different ways, keeping the audience guessing until the very end.”

Producer Anne Marie Naughton commented, “The film is filled with the director’s own fears, which we hope will be transferred to the audience. The goal was always to make a frightening horror film, pushing the genre and the medium almost to breaking point. It’s a very visceral cinematic experience.”

The world premiere of ‘The Canal’ will take place in the Midnight section of the Tribeca Film Festival at 10pm on Friday April 18.

'The Stag' (which is renamed 'The Bachelor Weekend' for the American market) will also screen at the film festival, at which it will receive its US premiere. 'The Stag' is out in Irish cinemas today.
