‘Further Beyond’ is a deconstructed biopic from Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor, featuring Denise Gough, Alan Howley, Jose Miguel Jimenez and Aiden Gillen. Its subject is Ambrosio O'Higgins, a mysterious Irish adventurer who left Ireland and eventually became Captain General of Chile in the Spanish Empire. ‘Further Beyond’ is produced by Desperate Optimists and is a debut documentary for Molly and Lawlor.

Jim Sheridan’s latest work ‘The Secret Scripture’ starring Jack Reynor also features in the line-up, with Aidan Turner (Poldark), Rooney Mara (Carol) and Venessa Redgrave (Mission Impossible) also starring. Sheridan co-wrote the script with Johnny Ferguson, based on the 2008 novel of the same title by Irish writer Sebastian Barry.

‘I am Not a Serial Killer’ produced by Floodland Pictures and directed by Billy O’Brien follows a homicidal teenager who curbs his own impulses while also forced to protect the lonely Midwestern town he lives in.
