Poison Pen to Screen at the IFI

Poison Pen

Sunday 31st August 2014

Following its success premièring at the Galway Film Fleadh in July, Poison Pen will have its first Dublin screening at the IFI. The new feature, based on a screenplay by internationally renowned author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl), will have an exclusive screening as part of the IFI’s Ireland on Sunday season.

The directors will participate in a Q&A and Eoin Colfer and the film’s cast and crew will be in attendance. Poison Pen is a production of the Filmbase/Staffordshire University MSc Digital Feature Film Production Course.

P.C. Molloy (Lochlann Ó Mearáin), a Booker-prize-winning author, is coerced into writing for a tabloid gossip magazine. Cultures clash and sparks fly as the cerebral Molloy finds himself immersed in the world of vain celebrities and he begins to fall for his boss (Aoibhinn McGinnity). A smart and savvy romantic comedy, Poison Pen asks questions about the nature of celebrity, integrity and deception.
