Wolfwalkers to screen at The Cork International Film Festival this weekend
12th Nov 2020
The critically acclaimed WOLFWALKERS is set to screen on the final day of the Cork International Film Festival as their Family Gala film on Sunday 15th November. The screening comes ahead of the animations highly anticipated Irish cinema release which had to be postponed due to Covid 19 restrictions and is set to happen once Irish cinemas reopen.
The third animated feature from two-time Academy Award©-nominee Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea) and Ross Stewart has been receiving glowing praise across the globe following festival screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival as well as its cinema release in the UK last month.
WOLFWALKERS follows Robyn Goodfellowe, a young apprentice hunter who journeys to Ireland with her father in a time of superstition and magic to wipe out the last wolf pack. While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night. As they search for Mebh’s missing mother, Robyn uncovers a secret that draws her further into the enchanted world of the “Wolfwalkers" and risks turning into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.
The Apple Original film is directed by Moore and Stewart and written by Will Collins (Song of the Sea). Paul Young, Nora Twomey, Moore and Stéphan Roelants serve as producers. It follows Moore’s two prior Oscar-nominated animated features, The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, as well as Cartoon Saloon’s Oscar-nominated The Breadwinner.
An official Ireland-Luxembourg co-production, WOLFWALKERS was produced with the participation of Value & Power Culture Communications Co, FIS/Screen Ireland, Film Fund Luxembourg, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, RTE, Canal +, OCS and the Pole Image Magelis, Charente Region Fund.
