Ireland has plenty to celebrate this year when it comes to our film industry.
Can we just take a moment for the ground-breaking 14 Oscar nominations this year? What a moment!
And that’s not where our success ends!
The upcoming Irish film, A Greyhound Of A Girl has been chosen to premiere at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival later this month.
The animated flick has been adapted from the novel by the legend that is Roddy Doyle. It also features the voices of stellar Irish talents, Oscar-nominee Brendan Gleeson, Sharon Horgan and Charlene McKenna.
The film follows 11-year-old Mary who has an insuppressible passion for cooking: she dreams of becoming a great chef. H
Her grandmother Emer, with whom she has a very special relationship, encourages her to make this dream come true but every path has its pesky obstacles and facing them turns into quite an adventure. Mary begins a journey across the barriers of time, in which four generations of women come together and get to know each other truly and deeply.
We already know our hearts won’t be able to take it.
The film was created by Jam Media and is the studio’s first feature film. It will be part of the BERLINALE Generation Kplus 2023 competition at the festival.
