Fargo Film Festival

I’ve not updated this in a while as I’ve been in hiding…. but just wanted to draw attention to the wonderful Fargo Film Festival. I had the good fortune to be included in their incredibly strong feature narrative line up earlier this year and had the even greater fortune to make my way over to the festival and show my dirty little face.

I met some incredible people, saw some outstanding films and also went bowling. Any filmmakers considering applying for the festival should stop thinking about it and just do it…


We played in the beautiful Fargo Theatre, which was celebrating its 90th birthday on the opening day of this years festival.

Once again, no one stabbed me post-screening…but it’s hardly surprising as they’re all such good people. Huge thanks to Brittany Goodman, Matt Olien, Emily Beck and everybody associated with the festival who made the experience so incredible.

Malady Festival Update Part 2

Following on from screenings at the East End Film Festival, Columbia Gorge and Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival – we had our next screening at Indie Cork.IndieCork_Poster

I managed to make my way out for the second half of the festival, and the atmosphere they had created out there was fantastic! I had the opportunity to watch some incredible features (my favourite being ‘Song of the Blackbird’ which deservedly won the award for best feature), an outstanding selection of shorts (‘How was your Day’, ‘Wait’ and ‘A Coat Made Dark’ were my favourite picks) and curated music events every evening!

I had a picture taken with Roxy at the festival that made my eyes look crazy. You can see it below…


The screening itself went incredibly well, we had a fantastic turn out and a really positive response to the film! Enormous thanks needs to go out to Una, Eibh, Shane and the entire team at IndieCork who made me have a fantastic time. They literally made me, and it was brilliant!! The festival is only in it’s 3rd year but felt incredibly established; the programme was incredibly diverse and there was lots of events and workshops running alongside the screenings. Be sure to head out to Cork for this one in future years! Check out their site here.

Malady Festival Update Part 1

It’s been a mad few months that have flown by incredibly quickly so wanted to do a quick update regarding recent festival screenings!!

Malady had two fantastic screenings at the East End Film Festival, huge thanks especially to Andrew Simpson and the whole East End Film Festival team as well as Ross Clarke for their huge support of the film!! The opening of East End turned out to be the hottest day in London ever (I think…), and, if truth be told, was a massive blur as a result of this. The festival programme was very interesting, but my personal highlight was the ‘Deprogrammed’ event curated by Noaz Deshe and EEFF. The whole day event took place in a secret masonic temple and showed films that dealt with themes of power and control; from government mind control experiments to brutal cults, this day event was as interesting as it was exhausting!! You can see more information about this here.


We were also incredibly luck to have been nominated for the Accession Award at the festival for music composition/art of the soundtrack. Huge congratulations to Bradley Oliver-White who composed our score!! We didn’t win… But congratulations has to go to Graham Hadfield for ‘Containment’ who was a lovely chap I had the pleasure to meet afterwards!

Following on from ¬†our screening at the East End, we had two more in the US (That I couldn’t make it over for) at the Columbia Gorge Film Festival and at the inaugural Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. I was enormously proud to have been a part of both festivals and heard the screenings went very well, keep an eye out again for their future programmes!
