Following it’s sold out screening at the Fingal Film Festival last month Mark O’Connor’s gritty drama Cardboard Gangsters is set to screen at the Cork Film Festival next month.  The screening which will take place in The Gate Cinema on Sunday 20th November will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director O’Connor.

Cardboard Gangsters follows the story of a group of young lads in Darndale, led by Jay Connolly (John Connors of Love/Hate fame), who sell drugs to make a living. They set out in a bid to gain more money and power and enter the big leagues of the drug trade. Things begin to unravel quickly as not everyone in Darndale is willing to let these Cardboard Gangsters achieve the notoriety they crave without a fight. Kierston Wareing and Dublin rapper Paul Alwright (Lethal Dialect) also star.

The Cork Film Festival which is celebrating its 61st year will take place November 11th – 20th in various cinemas across Cork City.  To view the full programme and to book tickets for Cardboard Gangsters see http://www.corkfilmfest.org/
