Second To None Added to Tribeca Line-up Alongside Two Other Irish Shorts
Congratulations to Vincent Gallagher’s IFB-supported animated short film, Second to None, which has been added to the Tribeca Film Festival line-up alongside two other Irish titles; Jim Sheridan’s 11th Hour and Benjamin Cleary and TJ O’Grady-Peyton’s Wave.
A black comedy in stop motion, Vincent Gallagher's Second to None tells the story of the world’s second-oldest man who learns that ambition can be a killer. Produced by Damian Farrell at Caboom, the short film won both Best Short and Best Animation at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2016. Second to None will screen in the Animated Shorts section of the festival, which showcases imaginative storytelling and captivating craft. Gallagher was recently awarded the ADIFF Discovery Award at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival.
Second to None appears alongside two other Irish shorts at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival: Jim Sheridan’s 11th Hour, which stars Salma Hayek Pinault and is set to the backdrop of 9/11 and Wave from Oscar-winner Benjamin Cleary and TJ O’Grady-Peyton; a short film about Gaspar Rubicon who wakes from a coma speaking a fully formed but unrecognizable language. Cleary won an Oscar in 2016 for his short film Stutterer, which saw him take home the award for Best Live Action Short Film.
The three Irish shorts join previously announced Irish films at Tribeca, including Brendan Muldowney's Pilgrimage, Emer Reynold's The Farthest and Ross McDonnell and Tim Golden's Elián. The Tribeca Film Festival takes place from 19–30 April.
