The BFI London Film Festival has unveiled the full programme for its 2020 physical-virtual hybrid edition, with 58 features playing to audiences across the UK from October 7-18 with Cathy Brady’s Wildfire screening virtually on BFI Player.

Developed and produced with funding from Northern Ireland Screen, Wildfire is the first feature film from the Newry writer/director.

Filmed on location in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, Wildfire stars the late Nika McGuigan (The Secret Scripture, Traders), and Nora-Jane Noone (Brooklyn, The Magdalene Sisters, The Descent), and tells the story of a missing woman who returns home, igniting an intense bond with her sister. United they unearth their mother’s past but the truth has devastating consequences. The legacies of the past are political as well as personal on the Irish border and they soon find themselves on a collision course with everyone around them. Brady’s debut is both a masterclass in unease and a superbly performed study of sibling relations.

Wildfire is produced by David Collins for Samson Films, Charles Steel for Cowboy Films and Carlo Cresta-Dina for Tempesta Film. An Irish-UK co-production, Wildfire is supported by the BFI, Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen and the Wellcome Trust.

Wildfire will be available on BFI Player on Saturday 10th October at 8:30pm.

“I quite like the challenge of writing characters without handles, for an audience to hold on to, you have to really work at keeping pace with them and go on the journey;“ Writer/director Antonia Campbell-Hughes discusses It Is In Us All
“We’ve tried to portray real life, real relationships, and all the complexity that comes with that;” Producer Collie McCarthy discusses his debut Netflix Original, I Used To Be Famous
