Cork film to vie for London awards gong

Wednesday, 6th February, 2019 5:01pm

A thriller film set in Cork and featuring stars from the likes of 'Game of Thrones' has been shortlisted for the National Film Awards in London.

‘Beyond the Woods’, a supernatural feature film shot on location in Cork, has been nominated for Best Thriller at this year’s National Film Awards UK on 27 March in London.

Starring actors Irene Kelleher and Seán McGillicuddy, both from 'Game of Thrones', the film is the first feature film by award-winning Cork director Sean Breathnach. It will vie for the Best Thriller Award at the star-studded National Film Awards, which are produced by the National Film Academy, and where Michael Caine has this year been nominated for the Global Contribution to Motion Picture prize.

The film, which tells of a group of friends who go to a secluded holiday cottage for a weekend, will compete against 'The Redeeming', 'RedCon-1', 'Annihilation', 'Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires', '16/03', 'Final Score' and 'Black Site' for the award.

Speaking about the film’s nomination, writer and director Sean Breathnach said: “We are thrilled to be nominated for this award. It's wonderful to get such recognition for our film. It's a tribute to the great work put in by a very talented cast and crew.”

When asked about the ceremony itself, Sean joked: “I've asked for the seat next to Michael Caine.”

The film is being distributed worldwide by Left Films, a UK-based distribution company.
