Irish Feature Films Fare Well At Berlin FF
The producers of the Irish movies that participated in the recent Berlin Film Festival, �Adam & Paul� and �The Mighty Celt�, have reported sales and growing interest for their films since the their screenings at the prestigious festival.
Pearse Elliott�s �The Mighty Celt� starring Robert Carlyle (Angelas Ashes, Trainspotting) and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) was nominated for The Crystal Bear Award in the Kinderfilmfest Programme. Although it didn�t pick up any awards producer Paddy McDonald at Treasure Films gave IFTN a very positive report from the festival which most importantly resulted in an Irish/UK distribution deal with Metrodome.
�The Berlin Festival was very positive from our point of view. The good news for us was that Metrodome has picked up the film for the UK and Ireland which was great. We are now looking at a good release in cinemas in October.�
Message from Gillian

Okay. I know it has been a long time but heh, I've been busy.
My mouse is not working, or my computer is not working, or something anyway, that I cannot figure out in my narrow understanding of all things technical and so I am sitting in the dark at my husband's computer frustratingly still jet lagged from my recent trip west and thought that it might be an appropriate time to say something and nothing.
What on earth have I been up to? Well, I started work on Bleak House for the BBC which has been tremendously rewarding and has made me fall in love with the craft of acting all over again.
I have been polishing up Speed Of Light and am close, finally, to letting it see the light of day. So to speak.
I have been unloading my house in Vancouver which I finally sold after over ten years of history there which was bitter sweet and a heck of a lot of work.
And we have finally found a writer for our Martha Gellhorn project which is very exciting and a long time coming.
Still waiting for a couple of projects which I love, to get full financing and go into production and otherwise enjoying my life and seeing the world and enjoying being married.
And that really is basically it; always busy, never sitting still for as long as I know would be good for me.
Thank you all once again for all your support of both my work and other endeavors, and hope you all come together to bid on NF auction material coming up cause there's some awesome and unexpected stuff and the charity really needs financial support right now.

You can find contact information for your elected officials here.
Fax is best, email second best.
