‘Solaria’ centres on Alex Russell played by Richard Sherwood, a geneticist abroad the Solaria Research space station, who has devoted his life’s work to his comatose patient Rachel played by Daria Kalista, a woman who is immune to the ageing process.

Director John Hoey commented on the news saying, “It’s terrific that Solaria has been accepted for such a major festival. It’s important that this film continues to reach new audiences and we hope for continued success with Solaria.

The short was shot on location in Dundalk Co. Louth as part of a student graduate project at Dundalk Institute of Technology. The screenplay was written by Craig Broughton and Darren O’Connor. It was produced by Craig Broughton. The DOP on the project was Darren O’Connor. Barry Locke provided the original score for the film. It was edited by Rossa O’Dowd.
