Speaking about the Austin selection, Writer/Director Liam O Mochain told IFTN:

“We are delighted to be screening in such a great festival as the Austin film Festival particularly as they have a strong emphasis on writers.  They have supported and celebrated many great films and filmmakers over the 25 years since the festival started from local talents like Robert Rodriquez, Rickard Linklater to Buck Henry, the Coen Brothers and Wes Anderson.  Producer Bernie Grummell adds ‘We are pleased for everyone involved in the film and looking to forward to a Texas audience getting an opportunity to see the film”.

'Lost & Found’ is a feature film with 7 interconnecting stories set in and around a lost & found office of an Irish train station.  All segments are inspired by true stories, share a theme of something lost or found, and characters that come in and out of each other’s lives. O Mochain says the reaction the film has got from both audiences and press in its’ Irish cinema release was great.  Dublin Inquirer said “Lost & Found is consistently funny.★★★★Newstalk said "Go see it…It will leave you with a smile on your face.“  Sunday Independent “lovely observations and a really great cast” The Irish Times “O Mochain’s third feature is his most appealing work to date”, The Sunday World said the film was “Charming” The Sunday Times “Humorous” and Sunday Business Post said the film was “a gentle contemporary comedy”
