I’m delighted and honoured to have 2 feature films I cut showing at the prestigious Sheffield Doc Fest this weekend. I’m heading over to the festival and really looking forward to not only seeing the films but to also catch a whole host of other great documentaries. Sheffield is the worlds 3rd biggest documentary festival and only accepts a small number of films so I’m sure to catch some great films.
In advance of the weekend I chatted with IFTN about both films, you can read that interview here
First up is the world premiere of Seán Ó Cualáin’s Crash and Burn on Saturday which tells the story of Tommy Bryne. A racer, a raconteur, thief. The greatest racing car driver you’ve never seen. Here’s a short teaser of what to expect.
On Monday there is the European Premiere of Mattress Men. The film went down a treat last month at hot Docs and I’m looking forward to seeing how it does in Sheffield. The screening will be over with a good hour to spare before the first Ireland game of the Euro’s
