"Adam & Paul" premiere in London June 4

"Adam & Paul" has just been announced in the line-up of the Brussels Film Festival on July 2. Other films to look out for include "Demi Tarif", "Guernsey" (poster of the year), "Czech Dream" and Douche Froide". See the programme line-up here.

Guerilla Films in association with the London Script Consultancy and the New Producers Alliance are hosting a premiere screening of "Adam & Paul", Ireland's surprise box office hit of 2004. Written by Mark O'Halloran and produced for just less than €400,000, it grossed over €700,000 in Ireland alone, where it is currently in the top five rental DVDs. "Adam & Paul" is a stylized, downbeat comedy about two hapless junkies, tied together by habit and necessity. It has been called "Laurel & Hardy on smack in Dublin and waiting for Godot."

"Funny, sad and thought-provoking... skilfully structured and superbly performed." (Evening Herald)

"Bleak, yet side-splitting; savage, yet heart-felt ... this is, quite simple, great stuff." (In Dublin)

"Mordantly funny and unexpectedly poignant" (Time Out)

The London Premiere will take place on Saturday 4 June, 11.00 am at the UGC Shaftesbury Avenue, followed by a Q&A with debut director Lenny Abrahamson (although it's a shame the award-winning O'Halloran is not even mentioned in the blurb). Discover how the filmmakers took their idea from the page to the big screen, with all the inevitable lucky breaks, mistakes, and pitfalls along the way.
