Patrick’s Day to Screen in 50 Cinemas Across the US From Today

Posted March 5, 2015 by Conor McDevitt in News

Patrick’s Day has come early for moviegoers in the US with audiences in selected independent cinemas across the states getting a chance to see Terry McMahon’s critically acclaimed second feature Patrick’s Day from the 5th to the 8th of March.

The special screenings are part of the Manhattan Short Feature Film Project, which each year selects one independent film to debut across the US

Every January a panel of programmers and owners from some of the USA’s leading independent cinemas gather at the Art House Convergence in Utah to review, discuss and vote on a selection of feature films entered into the Annual Feature Film Project. After reviewing the films, they vote on which film will debut in screens across the USA during the first weekend of March

The Feature Film Project’s aim is to help a film move from the festival circuit into neighborhood cinemas with a nation-wide test screening of the film. Viewing audiences are polled as to whether the film is deserving of a wider release.

The critically acclaimed film stars Moe Dunford, Kerry Fox, Catherine Walker and Philip Jackson and centres on a young man with mental health issues (Dunford) who becomes intimate with a flight attendant (Walker) with her own demons. When his obsessive mother (Fox) finds out she enlists a dysfunctional detective (Jackson) to separate them.
