The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)
The Callback Queen
Wednesday, 10th July
Town Hall Theatre
Acclaimed Dublin-born director, Graham Cantwell, premieres his romantic comedy The Callback Queen at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh. It is his second feature following Anton, which was nominated for three IFTA Awards. Amy-Joyce Hastings (The Tudors), who leads this all Irish cast, plays a young actress trying to get her first break while fending off the interests of her director.
Film Ireland spoke to Graham Cantwell about what it means to have The Callback Queen premiere at Gallway this year:
‘I’m delighted to continue my long-standing relationship with The Galway Film Fleadh. It’s my favourite festival on the calendar, the support and opportunities we have received in the past at the Fleadh have been invaluable, they are true supporters of indigenous talent and have helped to launch many careers, including my own. We’re all looking forward to a great night, with many of the cast attending and some great local support for Galway actors Amy-Joyce Hastings and Seán T. O Meallaigh’.
The Callback Queen explores the cutthroat arena of show-business. After landing an audition for the lead roll for a massive movie franchise, Kate Loughlin (Amy-Joyce Hastings) is pimped out to director Vincent Catalona (Mark Kileen) by her sleazy agent. Determined to prove her strict professionalism, she starts second guessing Vincent’s motives.
