'An Irish Father' is an Irish independent co production being made by Rose Finn Films & MooreForLess Productions. IFTA winning Irish Actor Gerard McSorley will lead the cast. The film looks at mental health and the relationship between an estranged Father and Son who meet for the first time in nearly a decade. It's based on the real life experiences of screenwriters Carl Finnegan & Darren McGrath. It's an emotional tribute to our fathers from an Irish perspective. The films psychology is based on the works of William Glasser who was the developer of 'Choice Theory'. His ideas, which focus on personal choice, personal responsibility and personal transformation can be found in every aspect of our screenplay.

The film will be Directed by Carl Finnegan and Co Produced by Craig Moore. Carl Finnegan's first directed/produced film  was the modern retelling of the James Joyce story 'Two Gallants'. Craig Moore's first directed/produced film is 'Any Last Words' and he produced 'Jacob wrestling with the Angel'.

For 'An Irish Father' we intend to use more sophisticated cameras and equipment then on previous productions. Transport and Accomodation expenses will be required as we intend to use rural areas as key locations. Insurance is required on the production and we have factored in post production costs into our target amount. This will still be far below the value of filmmaking cost as many have already offered their services for free. We need to begin shooting this film in mid november and we will need half of overall target to achieve this first goal.

The overall aim of 'An Irish Father' is to bring attention to the mental health in Ireland. This is your chance to get involved in socially responsible filmmaking telling a story of the heart. We have many perks to reward our supporters. Please help us make this project a reality. If you would like more details please contact us at dublinerfilm@gmail.com
