The Survivalist opens in Irish cinemas February 12th
15 Jan 2016 :
Martin McCann in Stephen Fingleton's 'The Survivalist'
Stephen Fingleton's debut feature has earned him Outstanding Debut BAFTA nom.

Bulldog Film Distribution are delighted to announce that captivating thriller The Survivalist (Cert 18 TBC) will be released in Irish cinemas on February 12th 2016. Filmed in Northern Ireland, the film stars Martin McCann (’71, Jump, Killing Bono), Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac Part II, A Cure For Wellness) and Olwen Fouéré (This Must be the Place).

The Survivalist was written and directed by Northern Ireland-born Stephen Fingleton, who has picked up a number of accolades for his work on the film, including; Best Debut Director at the British Independent Film Awards, Best New Narrative Director and Special Jury Mention at Tribeca, and most recently, a nomination in the Outstanding Debut category of the British Academy Film Awards.

In a kill-or-be-killed world where starvation is rife and strangers are always dangerous, The Survivalist lives off the grid, and by his wits. When a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover his forest refuge, his loneliness drives him to overcome his suspicion and 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.

A captivating thriller, The Survivalist marks the feature debut of writer-director Stephen Fingleton. Hailed by Indiewire as “Mad Max in the countryside”, and by Time Out New York as “Masterful…will shake you for days” in its 5 star review.

The Survivalist was produced by Wayne Marc Godfrey (Silence, Cake), Robert Jones (The Usual Suspects, Babylon) and David Gilbery (Bone Tomahawk) through The Fyzz Facility. Shot in Northern Ireland the film was financed by The Fyzz Facility, BFI and Northern Ireland Screen in association with Goldcrest.

IFTA hosts a First Look screening of the screen, with a Q&A with Stephen Fingleton and Martin McCann on 10th February in Dublin.

The Survivalist opens in selected cinemas across Ireland on February 12th 2016.
