Galway Film Fleadh Launch Amy-Joyce Hastings and Sean T O Meallaigh
Graham Cantwell’s second feature The Callback Queen will have its World Premiere the 25th Galway Film Fleadh at the Town Hall Theatre at 7pm on 10th July.
Speaking at the launch of the Fleadh on 25th June, Programme Director Gar O’Brien billed the film as a charming and hilarious romantic comedy which is genuinely funny and genuinely romantic. The plot is set in the cut-throat London film industry, where a vivacious actress chasing her big break struggles to maintain her integrity in the face of the director’s advances. The film has a special relevance to the film industry, whilst also sure to be greatly enjoyed by the general public and fans of comedy. The Callback Queen is one of the official ‘Fleadh Picks’ and a limited number of public tickets are on sale now.
As the screening is a World Premiere, the director Graham Cantwell and principal cast members will be in attendance along with the film’s Exec Producers Martin Carroll and Stephen Gibson (RCA Media) and Emmy nominated composer Joseph Conlan who scored the film.
Irish actress Amy-Joyce Hastings (The Tudors) plays Kate Loughlin, opposite Mark Killeen (Game of Thrones) in the male lead role. Both the film’s stars will be attending having flown in from London, along with other principal cast members Seán T. O Meallaigh (Kings), Kate Braithwaite (Little Deaths), Morgan Deare (United 93), Eoin Macken (Merlin) and ‘Allo, ‘Allo star Vicki Michelle, who is also fondly remembered by Irish audiences as Sally O’Brien from the much loved Harp commercial.
Director Graham Cantwell has a long history of success at the Fleadh with his short film A Dublin Story winning the Kodak Tiernan McBride Award, and subsequently being shortlisted for Academy Award Nomination in 2004. In 2008 the Galway Film Fleadh hosted the Irish Premiere of his first feature film Anton (Internationally titled Trapped) which went on to have a theatrical release, sold to over 40 territories worldwide and secured 3 IFTA nominations in 2009.
