Tickets are selling fast for the world premiere screening of new Irish feature GET UP AND GO at the Galway Film Fleadh this Thursday.  The screening will be attended by the film’s director Brendan Grant, cast members Peter Coonan (Love/Hate, King of the Travellers) and Gemma-Leah Devareaux (Stitches, How To Be Happy) along with a host of other people involved in the making of the film.

GET UP AND GO tells the story of Coilin played by Killian Scott (Love/Hate, Calvary) and Alex (Coonan), two friends in Dublin at the wrong end of their 20’s whose dreams of artistic greatness haven’t quite worked out.  When Alex discovers that his girlfriend is pregnant, he refuses to allow her derail his plans to leave Dublin for the bright lights of London.  Meanwhile Coilin’s carefully constructed world of hopes, dreams and expectations begins to come crumbling down around him.  Set against the backdrop of famous Dublin locations, pubs, and clubs, GET UP & GO shows a youthful and vibrant Dublin, rarely seen on film.

The film features live performances from David Kitt, Mik Pyro (Republic of Loose) and Peter Coonan, as well as tracks from the best of the Irish music scene, including Adrian Crowley, The Villagers, Lisa O’ Neill, and Jape.

GET UP AND GO is a Fastnet Films (Kisses, Life’s A Breeze) production in association with Fragrant Films and Celofan Audiovisual with the participation of Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board and The Film Agency for Wales.

The film will screen in the Town Hall Theatre on Thursday July 10th at 7pm and tickets can be purchased from the Town Hall Theatre website
