Irish Film ‘The Callback Queen’ gets U.S. Premiere

callbackqueenRenowned author of the Game of Thrones series of novels George R.R. Martin will present a four night run of romantic comedy The Callback Queen at his Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico in February 2014. At the premiere on February 7th Martin will host a post screening Q&A with lead actress Amy-Joyce Hastings.

The film, directed by award winning Irish filmmaker Graham Cantwell, has recently screened to great acclaim at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh and has had screenings at Leicester Square in London, and in Luxembourg at the British and Irish Film Season.

Set in the cut-throat London film industry, the story follows Kate Loughlin (Hastings), a vivacious actress chasing her big break, who struggles to maintain her integrity in the face of advances from Hollywood director Vincent Catalano (Mark Killeen).

“I’m really looking forward to the experience”, says Amy-Joyce, “I’m sure American audiences will take to the film the way they have in Ireland and Europe, it’s very funny and anyone with an interest in the film industry will love it. We’re taking it to LA immediately after the premiere to look for distribution, so hopefully we’ll be able to get The Callback Queen out to the greater public very soon.”
