WFTI Panel examining the sales & distribution of ‘Sing Street’ on February 18th
17 Feb 2016 : Seán Brosnan
‘Sing Street’
A panel examining the sales and distribution techniques of Irish film ‘Sing Street’ will take place on February 18th hosted by Women In Film and Television Ireland.

The session will include ‘Sing Street’ producers Martina Niland (‘Once’, ‘Grabbers’, ‘Run and Jump’) and Anthony Bregman (‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, ‘Begin Again’) and will be chaired by Patrick O’Neill of Wildcard Distribution.

The film made impressive sales before the film ever screened pre-selling in the US, the UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, France, Japan, Italy and Scandinavia to name but a few.

The panel discussion will be held at The Teachers Club in Dublin on 36 Parnell Square W, Dublin 1, from 3.30 – 4.30 pm. Those interested in attending should RSVP to wiftirl@gmail.com.

Written and directed by John Carney, ‘Sing Street’ made its’ world premiere at Sundance last month and received critical acclaim. The Guardian gave the film four stars and described the film as “pretty terrific”“cymbal-crashing crowdpleaser” with The Hollywood Reporter praising the film for its’ “infectious joyousness”. Noted US film critic Guy Lodge, writing for Variety, states that “lightning strikes thrice as Irish writer-director John Carney's let's-make-a-band formula once more yields winning results.”

The film is about a boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s who escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London and stars newcomer Ferdia Walsh-Peelo alongside Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Jack Reynor.

Women In Film and Television Ireland is the Irish branch of a global network of some 37 Women In Film chapters worldwide with over 13,000 members. Their aim is to advance professional development and achievement for women working in all areas of film, television, and other screen-based media in Ireland.

‘Sing Street’ hits Irish cinemas on March 17th – check out the trailer below:
