The adaptation of Colm Tóbín’s novel Brooklyn (pictured), starring Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month. This marks the fifth Irish project to screen at the festival. Brooklyn is directed by John Crowley and was filmed on location in Wexford, Dublin and Wicklow. The film was produced by Wildgaze Films, Finola Dwyer Productions, Parallel Films and Item 7. Brooklyn was co-financed by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.
The Irish co-production The Hallow, directed by Corin Hardy and filmed in Co. Galway, has also been selected to screen, as part of the Park City at Midnight section of the festival.
These films join the previously announced Irish films, Glassland, Strangerland and The Visit scheduled for the festival.
The Sundance Film Festival takes place from January 22 to February 1 in Park City, Utah.
