Love Eternal selected for the Sydney Film Festival

Love Eternal-1

June

Brendan Muldowney’s feature LOVE ETERNAL has been selected for the Sydney Film Festival in June. Find out more and book tickets here. It has screened in festivals around the world and won awards including the Dublin Film Critics Circle Best Irish Feature at Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.

Featuring the Emmy-nominated Dutch actor Robert de Hoog (Skin) and Pollyanna McIntosh (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.

LOVE ETERNAL was produced by Conor Barry, Morgan Bushe and Macdara Kelleher for Fastnet Films, with Luxembourg co-producers Red Lion, Dutch co-producers Rinkel Film and TO Entertainment from Japan, with support from the Irish Film Board, the Film Fund Luxembourg and the Netherlands Film Fund.

Irish audiences will have a chance to see the film when it is released in June. Watch the trailer here.
