Northern Irish film ‘The Survivalist’ acquired by Bulldog for UK Distribution
16 Oct 2015 : Seán Brosnan
‘The Survivalist’ will get UK theatrical release in 2016
The UK rights for Northern Irish film ‘The Survivalist’ has been acquired by Bulldog Film Distribution who plan to release the film theatrically in 2016.

The film is slated to play at the BFI London Film Festival this week (alongside Irish films ‘Brooklyn’ ‘The Lobster’ and ‘Room’ and ’11 Minutes’ and Northern Irish films ‘I Am Belfast’ and ‘High Rise’) and has previously played to positive reviews at the Tribeca, Belfast and the Galway Film Fleadh.

Check out our interviews with writer/director Stephen Fingleton and lead actor Martin McCann at the Galway Film Fleadh here and here.

‘The Survivalist’ is the near future story of a man (Martin McCann) eking out a meagre existence on a secluded smallholding deep in the forest. When a starving woman (Olwen Fouéré) and her teenage daughter (Mia Goth) discover his farm, his loneliness drives him to strike a bargain with them in return for bed and board. But as desire becomes stronger than necessity, the exchange becomes an uneasy, ongoing arrangement which threatens not only his carefully constructed world but also his life.

The film was developed with the support of the BFI Film Fund and Northern Ireland Screen’s New Talent Focus Scheme and the screenplay was previously featured on the Hollywood Blacklist and topped the UK Brit List. It’s produced by Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, and David Gilbery, with financing by The Fyzz Facility, alongside Northern Ireland Screen, the BFI and Goldcrest.

K5 International are handling worlwide sales. Alchemy acquired North American rights at this year’s Cannes.
