Irish talent will be at the fore at the 69th Edinburgh International Film Festival with 10 Irish films included in the programme which was announced this morning.

The world premiere will take place in Edinburgh of ‘Lost in France’, a music documentary by Niall McCann which charts the story of the creative hotbed that is the Glasgow indie movie scene. Produced by Still Films, ‘Lost in France’ features artists such as Mogwai, Arab Strap and The Twilight Sad.

Following its world premiere at Telluride Film Festival last year, IFTA-winning Irish documentary ‘Mom and Me’ by Ken Wardrop (‘His & Hers’) will screen at Edinburgh. A story based in Oklahoma, ‘Mom and Me’ is a creative documentary that delicately challenges the familiar love story shared between a son and his mother.

A number of Irish co-productions have been selected in this year’s programme. Moon Dogs, which stars Irish actress Tara Lee and was produced by Ripple World Pictures will screen at the festival along with ‘History’s Future’ which premiered at Rotterdam and ‘The Last King’, produced by Lesley McKimm and Jackie Larkin for Newgrange Pictures. History’s Future stars Irish actors Mark O’Halloran (Adam & Paul) and Brían Gleeson (The Stag). Following its premiere at Tribeca Film Festival, Tiger Raid which stars Brían Gleeson and Damien Moloney will have another outing at Edinburgh.

Other Irish titles in this year’s programme include Simon Fitzmaurice’s ‘My Name is Emily’, Paddy Breathnach’s ‘Viva’ and Rebecca Daly’s ‘Mammal’ as well as the Northern Irish film ‘A Patch of Fog’.

Edinburgh International Film Festival takes place this year June 15th – 26th. Established in 1947, it is the world's oldest continually running film festival.
