It will be screened at this prestigious festival from August 3rd -5th.
Thanks SO much to EVERYONE who worked on it!!
Very sad to hear of the passing of Alfred (Alf) McCormack.
Alf and his friend Freddie were two gentlemen printers at the National Print Museum and were the first people I met at the museum who encouraged me to research and make the film PROCLAIM!
They also said they would get me access to the museum- and they did!
Alf and Freddie were there on the day of the shoot and made sure the printing press worked for us and allowed us to film as it printed off several proclamations.
They also did us the massive favour of being in it.
They are the two gentlemen printers who take up the work of continuing to print after Christopher Brady leaves to bring more proclamations to the GPO and the streets and walls of Dublin City.
Alf also knew William O'Brien, one of the original printers of the proclamation (played by Brian Murphy), so it was perfectly fitting that he play the printer who took up the baton of continuing to print proclamations.
Alf is a beautifully warm & gentle soul with a cracking sense of humour & he will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Rest in eternal peace Alf
ONLY DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE FURTHER GOOD NEWS!

Alexandra comes runner up in a Page 3 Contest and will only get the winning money of £3000 if she goes ahead with the glamour shoot. Will she do it?
"There are two types out there. There are good girls and there are sluts. Which do you want to be?"
Good Girl is about Alexandra. A young woman who decides to do a topless glamour shoot after her ex-boyfriend posts a photo of her online and she inadvertently becomes runner up in a Page 3 Contest. She’s applied to go to college but she decides this may just be a much more lucrative option for her and may give her the money she’s been so desperately wanting to go back home to Australia. She's wise to the world. But does everyone agree with her? Can she maintain relationships with her father & those that judge this decision in a darker light? Contains some nudity.
