'Kubrick By Candlelight' has won Best Short Film at the Waterford Film Festival
10 Nov 2017 :
Light hearted short set in 1973 during the filming of Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon.

Kubrick By Candlelight is a light hearted romantic comedy set behind the scenes of the filming in Ireland in 1973 of Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon.

David O’Reilly, writer and director – “I’m incredibly honoured to receive this prestigious award and would first like to congratulate all of the other talent filmmakers who made such brilliant films. Secondly I would like to thank all of the Irish and UK crew and cast that worked hard at every level to make Kubrick By Candlelight a reality.”

“Thanks must be extended to the judges but also to Stephen Bryne and his team for making us very welcome. To win the Best Film Award here in Waterford – where Barry Lyndon was principally filmed back in 1973 is such a magical moment for us. Whilst we shot all of the film in Offaly, Waterford is very much part of our story and the opening shot features the terrific and dynamic landscape of Glenpatrick which we were lucky enough to visit on our trip to Waterford.”

“My only hope is we get to make our feature film and have the pleasure to return to Waterford to shoot”.

“We’ve had a great response to the film at the Oscar and BAFTA Qualifying Encounters Film Festival in the UK as well as a special screening in Offaly at Offline and winning here in beautiful Waterford is as good as it gets. After our Best Irish Narrative nomination in Kerry, our nominations for Best Film and Best Director at Richard Harris International Film Festival and our win there for Best Cinematography, we are really feeling the love towards the film which given it is a comedy is just brilliant news”.

Rounding out the cast are Al Foran as Mick Molloy as well as Mark Webb (Colour Me Kubrick), Lisa Moore and Alan Curran. The film is narrated by Brian Cox (Manhunter, Churchill, Braveheart).
