'A Coat Made Dark' animation still
The Colorado-based festival will run from September 2nd-5th and will screen over 70 projects from 22 countries. The line-up sees a showcase of documentary, feature film and animation from Ireland.

Irish titles include Aisling Walshe’s ‘Maudie’ and Jack O’Shea’s ‘A Coat Made Dark’, both of which were funded by the Irish Film Board.

‘Maudie’ is an Irish-Canadian co-production and is also set to open the Atlantic Film Festival on Thursday, September 15th. Additionally it is included in the impressive Irish line-up for TIFF 2016 alongside ‘Unless’, ‘Without Name’, ‘Forever Pure’ and ‘The Secret Scripture’.

The project is produced by Bob Cooper, Mary Young Leckie, Mary Sexton and Susan Mullen, and explores the life of Nova Scotia artist Everett Lewis played by Ethan Hawke, whose hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie played by Sally Hawkins.

‘A Coat Made Dark’ is an IFTA-nominated animation which has screened extensively at festivals this year, including Animaze in Montreal, Sundance, ADIFF and more. O’Shea’s project features the voices of Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Declan Conlon and Hugh O’Connor is produced by Damien Byrne.

Also included is ‘A Fanatic Heart – Bob Geldof on WB Yeats’, written by Geldof and Yeats scholar Roy Foster. This two-part documentary was commissioned by RTÉ which investigates the role of artists in reinventing Ireland in the decades preceding the 1916 Rising.

This project was directed by Gerry Hoban, with contributions from Van Morrison, Liam Neeson, Bono, Colin Farrell and others.
