Alan Maher selected for Producers on the Move at the Cannes Film Festival
03 May 2017 :
'Song of Granite'
The Marcie Films producer known for projects such as Pat Collins’ ‘Song of Granite’ is one of twenty producers selected for the networking platform, run by European Film Promotion. The 2017 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 17th–28th.

Producers on the Move is a five-day event beginning Friday May 19th, and will consist of a tailor-made programme of roundtable pitching sessions, 1:1 speed dating, case studies, including one in co-operation with the pan-European co-production fund Eurimages, as well as other industry meetings.

Maher's other credits as a producer include ‘After the Dance’ (Daisy Asquith) and ‘Being AP’ (Anthony Wonke), while he has executive produced ‘We Are Moving’ (Claire Dix), ‘Babygirl’ (Macdara Vallely) and ‘Where I Am’ (Pamela Drynan) among others.

Participants have proven experience in an international co-production and have already secured at least one international release. Several participants are also in competition at the festival. The aim of each of these events is to support the creation of new professional networks.

The longstanding programme is financially backed by the Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations. 

Alan Maher:
“I am delighted to be selected as Ireland’s Producer on the Move for the EFP (European Film Promotion) in Cannes this year, following in the footsteps of some of the producers I most admire in the industry. Following on from the success of Pat Collins’ Song of Granite at SXSW in March, it’s terrific to be able to highlight our company, Marcie Films, at the world’s most famous film market. The Producer on the Move scheme will also provide me with a perfect opportunity to showcase Trade our latest feature film, written by Mark O’Halloran and to be directed by Hong Khaou, which we are planning to shoot in the autumn with the support of Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board in collaboration with The Bureau, to be sold by Protagonist.”
