Out of Orbit's The Dig Available On Demand from July 8th
08 Jul 2019 : News Desk
Moe Dunford in The Dig.
Following its theatrical release earlier this year, The Dig will be available On Demand in Ireland and the UK on July 8th from iTunes, Sky, Google Play, Amazon, Virgin Media Ireland and Volta.

Winner of Best Irish Feature at last year’s Galway Film Fleadh, The Dig also picked up two Jury Awards at the 20th Newport Film Festival; Best Actor for Moe Dunford and Best Screenwriter for Stuart Drennan.  Drennan was also nominated for his screenplay at this year’s Writer’s Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Awards.

Starring Moe Dunford and Lorcan Cranitch, The Dig tells the story of Callahan (Dunford), who after serving fifteen years for murder, returns home to find Sean (Cranitch), his victim's father, searching for the body on an endless bog.  When Callahan asks the local police to remove the man from his land, he soon realises that the police and community want the killer in their midst gone for good. With no memory of the murder and no way of stopping Sean, Callahan decides his only option is to help him dig.

Directed by Andy and Ryan Tohill and produced by Brian J Falconer, The Dig was shot entirely in Northern Ireland with funding from Northern Ireland Screen supported by Invest NI and Yellowmoon.   

The Dig will be available on Demand from July 8th.
