Protagonist Pictures adds Paddy Breathnach’s Rosie to Sales Slate ahead of TIFF
24 Aug 2018 :
Protagonist Pictures have acquired the world sales rights to the Irish drama, excluding the UK and Ireland where Element Pictures Distribution will release.

‘Rosie’ is centred on a young family that loses their home in Dublin during the Irish housing crisis. Former IFTA winners Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful and Burnt) and Moe Dunford (Vikings and Patrick’s Day) star in the film, which was written by Bafta nominee Roddy Doyle (The Commitments and The Snapper).

The project was funded by Screen Ireland and the BAI and is being produced by Emma Norton, Rory Gilmartin and Juliette Bonass

Speaking with Screen Daily, Rory Gilmartin of Element Pictures said:

“The film centres on the chronic lack of housing across Ireland, which is currently one of the most pressing social issues, not just in Ireland, but in so many countries across the globe.”

Producer Emma Norton added:

“Paddy, Roddy and our fantastic cast have created a human story that echoes the real-life experiences of families all over the world. We really believe that Protagonist are the perfect partners to bring Rosie to an international audience.”

Protagonist CEO, Dave Bishop said:

”Rosie is that perfect mix of exceptionally well-made cinema and timely social relevance that creates the kind of experiential viewing that resonates so strongly with audiences.”

‘Rosie’ will premiere at Toronto International Film Festival next month.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
Over €4.6m allocated by Creative Europe to Irish screen industry in 2021
