Posted May 14, 2014 by Suzanne Murray in News

Irish film Love Eternal, will have its Cork premiere as opening film of the Twisted Celluloid Film Festival in the Triskel Arts Centre on Thursday 15th May.

Directed by Brendan Muldowney (Savage), it recently won the Dublin Film Critics Circle Best Irish Feature Award at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, and will be released in Irish cinemas by Wildcard Distribution on July 4th.

Love Eternal premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2013, and has now screened at over sixty festivals worldwide, including the prestigious Sitges and Busan, and winning the inaugural Fresh Blood Award at the recent Black Bear Film Fest in Warsaw. Featuring the Emmy-nominated Dutch actor, Robert de Hoog (Skin), and Scottish actress Pollyanna McIntosh (Filth, The Woman), and based on the Japanese novel In Love With The Dead, from acclaimed author Kei Oishi (Apartment 1303, The Last Supper), the film centres on an isolated and death-fixated young man who tries to make sense of the world, and his existence, in the only way he knows how…by getting closer to death.

Screen International described the film as “a beguiling and deftly enigmatic tale of dark and haunted love”, with The Hollywood Reporter calling it “a blackly comic tragedy and macabre melodrama rolled into one.”

Speaking about the screening at the Twisted Celluloid Film Festival, Brendan Muldowney director of Love Eternal said:

I’m delighted that Love Eternal is screening in Cork as we shot half the film there, in Cobh and Howe strand. Also many of our crew members including the producer are from Cork. So it will truly be a homecoming for the film.”
