Irish Film at the Galway Film Fleadh preview: Cold


The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)


Saturday, 13th July

Town Hall Theatre


Eoin Macken writes, directs and stars in a new feature, Cold, set to premiere on Saturday at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh. Partly funded through an indiegogo campaign, the film is centred around two disconnected brothers, and is partly inspired by John Steinbeck’s East of Eden.

Film Ireland spoke to Eoin Macken about what it means to have his feature premiere at the Fleadh. ‘For me, having my film premiere in the main hall in Galway is an honour. Galway is my favourite film festival, and is a huge part of Irish filmmaking. Ever since I first started attending the festival I have wanted to premiere a feature I directed in the main hall, so it’s very exciting and humbling, and a testament to the talented people who trusted me on this film’.

When Jack (Eoin Macken) returns home due to the mysterious death of his father, a dark history between him and his brother, Tom (Tom Hopper), resurfaces. Events take an unexpected turn when they find a girl dumped still alive in the moors. What follows is a tragic and surreal tale of love and redemption.

  1. Hold on a sec! How can this be considered a ‘debut feature’? Macken has already directed several movies including Christian Blake which got screened at a previous Galway Film Fleadh.
