The all-Ireland film will receive its World Premiere at the New York festival, where it has been officially selected to feature in the Midnight section this April.

The film is a co-production between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, written and directed by Chris Baugh from a story by Baugh and Brendan Mullin.

Produced by Mullin for Six Mile Hill and Yvonne Donohoe for Blinder Films, Boys From County Hell marks the second feature from Baugh following his 2017 debut Bad Day for the Cut, which received its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The dark comedy horror was filmed in Northern Ireland with post-production in the Republic of Ireland with a mix of NI and ROI crew, including DOP Ryan Kernaghan, Production Designer John Leslie, Editor Brian Philip Davies, Costume Designer Triona Lillis, First AD Craig Kenny, stunts by Brendan Condren and SFX from Bowsie Workshop and Millennium FX.

The story follows a crew of hardy road workers, led by a bickering father and son, who must survive the night when they accidentally awaken an ancient Irish vampire. Boys From County Hell stars Jack Rowan (Born to Kill), Nigel O’Neill (Bad Day for the Cut), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Michael Hough (My Name is Emily), John Lynch (The Secret Garden) and Fra Free (Animals).

“We’ve been wanting to make this movie for a long time. When we finally got our chance we were lucky to have incredible people on both sides of the camera,” said director Chris Baugh. “The fact that we are premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival is a testament to their hard work and talent. We can’t wait to introduce New York audiences to the Boys From County Hell.”

Executive producers include Katie Holly for Blinder Films, Brian Kavanagh Jones and Rian Cahill for Automatik in the US. The co-producer is Katy Jackson. The film was supported by Endeavor Content, Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen, and Egg Post Production

In recent years, Irish film has had a consistent presence at Tribeca Film Festival with over ten films selected for screening in the past three years, ranging from features to shorts, documentaries, and animation. Founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, the Tribeca Film Festival has become one of the most important and well-respected film festivals in the world.

The 2020 Tribeca Film Festival takes place from 15 – 26 April.
