Irish Titles at 2017 Edinburgh International Film Festival
01 Jun 2017 : Katie McNeice
The upcoming festival which has run since 1947 will run from June 21st-July 2nd this year with documentary feature project ‘The Farthest’ from accomplished editor and debut director Emer Reynolds screening in competition.

Following screenings at the Tribeca Film Festival and ADIFF and the upcoming at AFI Docs, this examination of mankind’s greatest ever space mission is on a steady and impressive festival run. ‘The Farthest’ is produced by John Murray and Clare Stronge of Crossing the Line Films.

The second documentary title from Ireland to screen at the festival is IFTA-nominated ‘It’s Not Yet Dark’ from Frankie Fenton narrated by Colin Farrell. This looks at the awe-inspiring life of his fellow filmmaker Simon Fitzmaurice, following his diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease in 2008. It is produced by Kathryn Kennedy of Kennedy Films and Lesley McKimm, formerly of Newgrange Pictures.

‘Maudie’ from the seasoned Irish talent Aisling Walsh (Song for a Raggy Boy) is also screening in competition under the feature film category. Following its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in September 2016 Walsh told ‘Maudie’ took thirteen years to come to fruition, while her feature film ‘Song For a Raggy Boy’ took a decade to complete, in a way making it almost a life’s work.‘Maudie’ is a Parallel Films project.

Other feature films screening are Deadpan Pictures’ ‘Halal Daddy’ (Conor McDermottroe) which comes under the European Perspectives stream, Galway Film Fleadh screener ‘Pilgrimage’ (Brendan Muldowney) from Savage Productions, and Irish/Norwegian co-production ‘The King’s Choice’ (Eric Poppe) with Irish Jackie Larkin and Lesley McKimm on board that project.
