IFTA award-winning Michael Inside to be released in Irish cinemas on April 6th

Posted: 28th March 2018

Frank Berry’s highly anticipated feature Michael Inside will be released in Irish cinemas on Friday 6th April. 

The IFTA- award-winning film, which stars Dafhyd Flynn, Moe Dunford and Lalor Roddy, tells the story of Michael McCrea, an impressionable 18-year-old living with his grandfather Francis in a Dublin housing estate, who gets caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend’s older brother and is sentenced to three months in prison.

Since its premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh last summer where it won Best Irish Film and the Bingham Ray New Talent Award (Dafhyd Flynn), it’s been wowing audiences and critics alike.  It picked up the Audience Award at the Cork International Film Festival in November and has garnered numerous five star reviews and the film and Dafhyd Flynn were included on many ‘Movies to See” and “People to Watch Out For” lists for the year ahead.

In addition to its Best Feature win at this year's IFTA's, Michael Inside's nominatations extended to the categories of Best Director (Frank Berry), Best Scriptwriter (Frank Berry) and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Dafhyd Flynn).

Produced by Donna Eperon, Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O’Sullivan for Subotica and Write Direction Films, the film was made with funding from the the Irish Film Board / Bord Scannán na hÉireann.

Wildcard Distribution will be releasing Michael Inside in Irish cinemas on Friday 6th April 2018.
