Damien O’Connor’s IFTA nominated short animation After You has been selected from over a 1000 submissions to screen at this years prestigious Cinequest Film Festival. Listed as one of the top ten film festivals in the world, Harrison Ford and Salman Rushdie are among the top stars scheduled to attend next month’s event, which is expected to draw 100,000+ visitors.

Speaking about the selection Damien said ‘I am delighted that a small tale about Dublin is getting out to such a wide audience. American film festivals can be tricky to get into, but as I witnessed at the recent Martha’s Vineyard international Film Festival, American audiences really seem to love it. It is huge opportunity for me to be able to attend Cinequest with an Irish film’

After You, which tells the tale of sixty years in the life of a Dublin doorman, won best Animation at last years Kerry Film Festival.

The Cinequest Film Festival takes place in San Jose California from February 26th to March 10th.
