The third feature film from the Irish writer/director (following ‘The Book That Wrote Itself’ and ‘W.C.’)has been picked up by Gravitas Ventures for all rights worldwide (excluding Ireland, UK, Australia and New Zealand).

The film was recently acquired by Rialto Film Distribution for AUS/NZ, FILM 4 and High Fliers for the UK and RTE TV in Ireland.  ‘Lost & Found’ was released to rave reviews in the UK in Oct and Ireland in July. The film had its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh where it sold out instantly, won best foreign film at the Arizona Int. film festival and was a buzz title at the recent 25th Austin Film Festival in early November.

Speaking about the acquisition Liam O Mochain said: 

“We are delighted to have made a deal with Gravitas Ventures for Lost & Found.  Although just over 10 years old Gravitas have made a huge impact on the industry releasing a lot of great films from fiction to docs from all over the world.  I am really looking forward to audiences in North America getting an opportunity to engage with the film when it is released in theatres in early 2019 and internationally later in 2019”. 

Producer Bernie Grummell added: 

“We are thrilled, the film was a labour of love for everyone involved over the 5 years of production and it is great that the film will be released by Gravitas to new audiences”. 

Tony Piantedosi, Director of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures said: 

“Liam crafts a hilarious ensemble comedy full of both small town charm and universal appeal. LOST & FOUND was a highlight of this year’s Austin Film Festival, and we look forward to bringing the film to audiences around the world,” 

'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 to the film from both audiences and press on its recent UK & Irish cinema release was great.  BBC Radio London said about the film “A fantastic film I laughed out loud”, Radio Times “an endearing Irish comedy”, Irish Post “Irelands’ answer to Short Cuts,” Newstalk Go see it…It will leave you with a smile on your face.“  Sunday Independent“lovely observations and a really great cast”, The Sunday World said the film was “Charming”, The Sunday Times “Humorous”, Irish Times “Entertaining” and The Guardian “A deadpan comedy.”
