Bertie Brosnan’s short films: Sineater and  Jacob Wrestling With The Angel have been picked up by internationally-owned shorts network Shorts TV in a non-exclusive deal via the US distribution outfit Bidslate.

Director, Bertie says: “It’s been a long journey from the production of Jacob Wrestling With The Angel and Sineater to this moment to finally see my first short films distributed through a legitimate network. I am delighted for all involved because we have a chance to showcase all our work to the world. Being a non-exclusive deal I am open to shopping the films around to other networks and through pay-per-view sites. Thanks to everyone involved especially Roland of Bidslate for making sure we got the deal done.”
