Ireland on Sunday is our monthly showcase for new Irish film.

The Director, Kevin Liddy will participate in a post-screening Q&A.

In his long-awaited new work, The Suffering Kind, multi-award-winning director Kevin Liddy moves away from the stark Irish countryside which defined his earlier films (Horse, Soldier’s Song and Country) to an urban setting in upstate New York. Filmed by Oscar-nominated Declan Quinn, this intimate drama about an inner city priest and a sanitation worker trying to maintain his sobriety, is about the power of delusion and the longings that haunt us.

Kevin’s first cinema short, Horse, is a muscular, poetic evocation of 1960s rural Ireland about a father’s inability to communicate with his young son, magnificently photographed by Donal Gilligan.

 

THE SUFFERING KIND: 26 MINUTES, IRELAND-U.S.A., 2014, COLOUR,D-CINEMA HORSE: 30 MINUTES, IRELAND, 1993,COLOUR, 35MM

Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes are pleased to announce the creation of a unique and exciting scheme, Film Limerick.

 

The Film Limerick project presents a fantastic opportunity for new and emerging filmmakers to get their films made with both funding and industry support. This funding initiative aims to nurture creative filmmaking, and at the same time facilitating the long term goal of encouraging both established and emerging filmmakers to Limerick.

 

Film Limerick is seeking Ireland’s exciting filmmaking talent to produce short films using Limerick as a location. Two successful applicants for the awards receive up to €15,000 in cash towards the production budget for their film. Each production also receives advice and support for making the films. The first screening of the two shorts will take place in Limerick as part of Limerick City of Culture 2014, and the successful filmmakers will be encouraged to submit their films to festivals both in Ireland and abroad. In addition the two shorts will be used as part of Limerick City’s bid for European City of Culture 2020.

 

At the heart of the Film Limerick project is the aim to shine a spotlight on Limerick as a film destination and to enable Limerick to realise its potential as a film producing hub. This will facilitate the long term goal of encouraging both established and emerging filmmakers to use Limerick as a location. It also aims to develop a number of projects that form part of the legacy for Limerick in 2014 during its year as National City of Culture.

 

Film Limerick is now open for entries and are looking for filmmakers who are driving the genre of short film forward through inspirational and innovative works. Whether you are just starting out or you have been making films for years, this is your chance to shine.

 

The closing date for applications is: 3pm Monday 1st  September 2014.

Casting begins for TV3’s new Soap ‘Red Rock’

 

 

Casting begins for TV3’s new Soap ‘Red Rock’

 

The casting process for TV3’s brand new soap ‘Red Rock’ will get underway this weekend with two Dublin casting sessions at the John Player Factory. Casting will take place under the directorship and watchful eye of Louise Kiely and people will be seen on a first come, first served basis.

Louise Kiely, Red Rock, TV3, casting, soap opera,

Louise Kiely has built her reputation as one of Ireland’s leading casting directors, and has cast a number of up-and-coming Irish actors in successful films, including Jack Reynor in the critically acclaimed ‘What Richard Did’, the BBC series ‘Quirke’ as well as the Irish casting on ‘Ripper Street’ and ‘The Sea’.

Over the next three weeks a casting team made up of Louise Kiely, Thyrza Ging, Eva-Jane Gaffney, Allen Kiely, Karen Scully and Jane Barry will see over 2,200 people across key casting sessions held in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Belfast and Galway. The team are hoping to represent the diversity of contemporary culture and ethnicities in Ireland as well as different age groups.

Hinting at what they’ll be looking for from the scheduled casting sessions, Louise Kiely said: “We are super excited to get started. There will be a ticket system at each of the venues, on a first come, first seen basis! We can see 500 per day in Dublin and 300 per day in the other cities. In order to get seen, I would advise getting there early. If we cannot see you on the day, we shall accept self-tapes in the coming months. We would ask that people prepare a Film/TV monologue of a minute in length. We are creating a whole town, cast-wise, from the ground up. What a cool challenge! For more details check out our Facebook page www.facebook.com/LouiseKielyCasting

The ‘Red Rock’ casting team are unlikely to cast anyone still attending secondary school outside the Dublin area as it uneconomic and impractical for them to travel outside of school hours.

Limerick’s Casting day is August 16th. For more information on the casting process visit www.louisekiely.com or www.facebook.com/LouiseKielyCasting.

Red Rock will go into production this autumn and will be produced by Element Pictures and Company Pictures. The series creator and chief writer is Peter McKenna.
