‘Patricks Day’ screens across 50 American cinemas as part of The Feature Film Project March 9, 2015

Terry McMahon’s Award-winning film, PATRICKS DAY, was shown in 50 cinemas across the United States last week.

Chosen to screen in selected cinemas from March 5th to March 8th after winning the Manhattan Short Feature Film Project last month, audiences at each venue were given the chance to vote on whether the film should return to the cinema for a theatrical release in 2015. The Feature Film Project is a collective of Art House Cinemas across the USA with the focus of taking feature films from the festival circuit and moving them into the cinema circuit.

Written and Directed by McMahon, the film explores the intimate relationship between a mentally ill young man and an older, suicidal air-hostess. But when his obsessive mother enlists a dysfunctional cop to break them up, things get complicated…

Starring Silver Bear Winner, Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave) and Screen Actors Guild nominee, Philip Jackson (Little Voice), the film was Produced by Tim Palmer, (Into the West), and Rachel Lysaght, (The Pipe), with World Cinematography Award winner Michael Lavelle, serving as the films DOP.

Winner of the ‘Best Irish Feature Film’ at the 2014 Galway Film Fleadh, ‘Patrick’s Day’ will continue to enthral audiences across the European festival circuit this month, where it will screen at the Irish Film Festa in Rome and the Sofia International Film Festival in Bulgaria amongst others.

Warren Dowling was the finishing editor on the film, which had its Sound Mixed in Centre Stage 2 by Sound Re-recording Mixer, Ken Galvin.
