Glassland Wins at JDIFF / by Steve Fanagan

Huge congratulations to writer/director Gerard Barret, producers  Ed Guiney, Juliette Bonass and Andrew Lowe, Element Pictures and all of the cast and crew involved in making 'GLASSLAND', which was awarded Best Irish Film at this year's Jameson Dubiln International Film Festival. Piers McGrail (GLASSLAND's DOP) was also deservedly awarded the Michael Dwyer Discovery Award.

GLASSLAND was selected to play as part of the World Cinema Dramatic competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, where Jack Reynor's lead performance as John earned him the Special Jury Award for Acting. The film premiered at the 2014 Galway Film Fleadh, where it was also awarded Best Irish Feature Film.

The film, which is release in Irish and UK cinemas on 17th April, tells the story of John, a young taxi driver on the fringes of the criminal underworld, who, in a desperate bid to save his mother from a crippling alcohol addiction and reunite his broken family, is forced to take a job which drives him further into Dublin’s dark underbelly.
