Closer to home, the film has been selected for The Kerry Film Festival (Oct 31 – Nov 7) and will screen at 4pm on Monday 2nd November in The Old Presbytery. http://www.kerryfilmfestival.com/INS2.html.  To adjudicate the shorts they have lined up a stellar panel of Judges – chief among them is Jeremy Irons, the Oscar winning actor who heads up the Adjudication panel. Marc-Ivan’s previous production, ‘Other’, won best experimental film at the festival in 2007. So who knows, lightning might strike twice?

Foyle Film Festival
And finally, the film is also included in the 22nd Foyle Film Festival in Derry, Northern Ireland (20 – 22 November) and will screen on Saturday 28 November at 11.30 at the Nerve Centre. This is a long established festival and winners are made eligible for BAFTA and Oscar nomination!

Film is really cool… Well done. The film is excellent!!! It is really beautifully done, the music at the end is very captivating.

Congrats on the short… quite surreal… also liked the music by the way! … reminiscent of the album “pink moon” for me sparse… emotive on a primal level.

oh and the dialogue was spot on, sharp, crisp, and incredibly funny … nicely paced, almost theatrical in places

… a sense of comedic “irishness” sadly missing today.
Stuck a cold hard knife into my hardy Irish flesh

These are just some of the lovely comments we’ve received. A big thanks to everyone who attended our premiere screenings in Filmbase, Dublin and at the launch of the Visual Centre, Carlow. The consensus was that the latest batch of Filmbase films are the best to date. It’s great to be in such good company.

And by all accounts, The Visual Centre and GB Shaw Theatre kick-off was spectacular with visitors giving the back-handed compliment: ‘This is fantastic, Why is it in Carlow?’

Why not? The Carlow-born makers of the locally-shot Blood Coloured Moon certainly don’t feel urban centres hold the monopoly on creative output.
