How exciting! Will we see Paul walk the red carpet?

The film is based in the north-west coast of Ireland, directed by New York-based filmmakers Saela Davis and Anna Rose Holmer (The Fits),

The film description reads: “In a windswept fishing village, a mother is torn between protecting her beloved son and her own sense of right and wrong. A lie she tells for him rips apart their family and close-knit community in this tense, sweepingly emotional epic.”

Receiving its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight, the critically acclaimed film also received five BIFA 2022 nominations: Emily Watson for Lead Performance; Paul Mescal and Aisling Franciosi for Best Supporting Performance; Shane Crowley for Best Debut Screenwriter and Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans for Best Original Music.

Following its Irish premiere at the festival, God’s Creatures will release to cinemas in Ireland on March 24th and the UK on March 31st.

The full DIFF programme will be revealed on Tuesday 7th February at 1pm.
