Irish co-production ’11 Minutes’ and documentary ‘Being AP’ added to Toronto slate
11 Aug 2015 : Seán Brosnan
’11 Minutes’ and ‘Being AP’ heading to Toronto next month
Irish feature film ’11 Minutes’ and documentary ‘Being AP’ have both been added to this year’s Toronto line-up.

Both films join previously announced Irish titles ‘Room’, ‘The Lobster’ and ‘Brooklyn’.

Jerzy Skolimowski’s ’11 Minutes’ will screen in the Masters section of the Toronto festival. The film will also screen in competition at the Venice Film Festival next month.

Produced by Ewa Piaskowska of Skopia Film and co-produced by Andrew Lowe and Ed Guiney of Element Pictures with backing by the Irish FilmBoard, the film stars Irish actor Richard Dormer in the lead and had a five day shoot in Dublin in September last year before moving on to Poland. The film follows the same 11 minutes in the lives of several different characters; young and old, prosperous and destitute.

Commenting on the selection of the film (along with other Element titles ‘Room’ and ‘The Lobster’), Ed Guiney said: “We’re delighted to have three films in Toronto. It’s a brilliant platform for the very best of world cinema and we are delighted and honoured that these films have been selected. As ever it’s a testament to the amazing film makers we are lucky enough to be working with.”

Documentary feature ‘Being AP’ was selected to screen as part of TIFF Docs. The film follows 20-time champion jockey AP McCoy in his final season and was picked up by US Distributor Entertainment One earlier this year.

The Moneyglass Films documentary was part funded by Northern Ireland Screen as part of its Landmark Documentary scheme which sought to bring unique Northern Ireland stories to a wider audience. The film also received funding from the Irish Film Board.

Directed by BAFTA-winner Anthony Wonke (‘The Tower: A Tale of Two Cities’), the all-access documentary follows the 40 year-old who has notched up more than 4,300 wins, 700 falls, 40 broken bones and a BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award in 2010 across a near 25-year racing career.

The Moneyglass Films Production was made in association with Roads Entertainment and Partizan Films and in association with BBC Films and with support from the Irish Film Board, Northern Ireland Screen and the British Horseracing Authority/Great British Racing.

The Toronto International Film Festival takes place September 10-20.
