Irish Director, Bryony Dunne, has been selected for the final round of competition, with her new project ‘Above The Law’ at the Euroconnection short film production forum, taking place at the Clermont Ferrand Film Festival, on February 6th.
Euro Connection is the marketplace for short film co-production in Europe with the aim of fostering partnerships between European production companies, financial backers and broadcasters for short film projects. IndieCork Festival, is the Irish desk of Euroconnection and as such, nominates the Irish project annually.
Several Irish short films have found financing through this forum in past years, most recently ‘Ghost Train’ by Lee Cronin. However, no Irish project has been selected to the final round in the past two years.
Mick Hannigan, Co-Director of IndieCork Festival who nominated Bryony Dunne commented: ‘We have been nominating the Irish entry at Euroconnection every year, but we are particularly pleased in 2018 to nominate Bryony Dunne for her script ‘Above The Law’. The project is very high calibre both in it’s writing and conception and Bryony brings a unique artistic vision to it. Euroconnection is a great opportunity for any filmmaker to make contacts and source funding and partners. This is very much where IndieCork can help emerging filmmakers, and we look forward to supporting Bryony in Clermont Ferrand at the event’.
