Cannes takes place May 11-22
The 2016 Cannes Film Festival kicks off tomorrow (May 11-22) with the Irish once again fielding a very strong contingent at the globally renowned event.

There is plenty of activity at the Irish Pavilion – which has moved this year to a more central location beside the USA Pavilion and across from the Palais (Number 131, International Village) - with five films screening at the Marche Du Film, 21 films selling and 16 films going to the Market.

The five Irish films screening include Rebecca Daly’s acclaimed drama ‘Mammal’, Johnny O’Reilly’s multi-faceted Russian language film ‘Moscow Never Sleeps’, Whit Stillman’s period film ‘Love & Friendship’, Billy O Brien’s highly anticipated ‘I Am Not A Serial Killer’ and Simon Dixon’s thriller ‘Tiger Raid’.

Films going to the Cannes Market this year include Frankie Fenton’s documentary ‘It’s Not Yet Dark’ (about Irish filmmaker Simon Fitzmaurice), Juanita Wilson’s ‘Tomato Red’, Conor Horgan’s ‘The Queen of Ireland’, Robert Manson’s ‘Lost In The Living’, Peter Foott’s ‘The Young Offenders’, John Butler’s ‘Handsome Devil’, ‘Seán Ó Cualáin’s ‘Crash and Burn’, Emer Reynolds’ ‘The Farthest’, Nora Twomey’s ‘The Breadwinner’, Colm Quinn’s ‘Mattress Men’, Philip John’s ‘Moon Dogs’, Niall McCann’s ‘Lost In France’, Len Collins’ ‘Sanctuary’, Darren Thornton’s ‘A Date for Mad Mary’, ‘Alex Fegan’s ‘Older Than Ireland’ and Risteard Ó Domhnaill’s ‘Atlantic’.

There is also a long and impressive list of Irish films selling at Cannes including Brendan Muldowney’s ‘Pilgrimage’, Paddy Breathnach’s ‘Viva’, Jim Sheridan’s ‘The Secret Scripture’, Gerard Barrett’s ‘Brain On Fire’, John Carney’s ‘Sing Street’, Ken Wardrop’s ‘Mom and Me’, Fiona Tan’s ‘History’s Future’, David Keating’s ‘Cherry Tree’, Alan Gilsenan’s ‘Unless’, Lorcan Finnegan’s ‘Without Name’, Dennis Bartok’s ‘POV’, Aisling Walsh’s ‘Maudie’, Jerzy Skolimowski’s ‘11 Minutes’, Martin Stalker’s ‘Hostage to the Devil’, Liam Gavin’s ‘A Dark Song’, Brendan J. Byrne’s ‘Bobby Sands: 66 Days’, Pieter-Jan De Pue’s ‘The Land of the Enlightened’, Simon Fitzmaurice’s ‘My Name is Emily’, Stephen Burke’s ‘Maze’, Nils Gaup’s ‘The Last King’ and Eric Poppe’s ‘The King’s Choice’.

A huge delegation of over 120 industry figures are heading with the Irish Pavilion and they include Conor Barry (Savage Productions), Naoise Barry (Pinewood), Morgan Bushe (Fastnet Films), James Flynn and Juanita Wilson (Metropolitan Films), Edwina Forkin (Zanzibar Films), Jacqueline Kerrin (Ripple World Pictures), Ed Guiney (Element Pictures), Jackie Larkin (Newgrange Pictures), Brendan McCarthy (Fantastic Films), Nick Ryan (Floodland Pictures), Tristan Orpen Lynch (Subotica) Martina Niland (Cosmo Films) and Marie Claire White (Cosmo Films) to name a few.
