Galway Film Centre and RTÉ have announced the team of Scriptwriter, Director and Producer for this year’s RTÉ/GFC Short Film Commission. Sarah Ingersoll’s script The Bridge will now be developed into a short film with Director Mark Smyth and Producer Lynn Larkin.
Alan Duggan, Galway Film Centre Manager noted, “We were heartened by the number and calibre of this year’s submissions. From 132 submitted scripts, we whittled it down to three very strong scripts and from that Sarah’s script The Bridge was chosen. Mark Smyth really impressed the interview panel with his pitch and interpretation of the story and then Lynn Larkin came through as a very talented producer. We’re delighted to have arrived at such a great team.”
Shooting of The Bridge is expected to commence in late Summer/early Autumn with the film due for completion in late 2018.
