A FEATURE film, shot by a young Knockanure director in north Kerry, is to have its world premiere at the country's biggest film festival.
Pilgrim Hill, a study of rural isolation, directed by Gerard was selected for Galway Film Fleadh in July.
"It's huge news for us in the sense that it was shot for €4,500 and will be in competition in Galway with Irish Film Board films that cost millions," Mr Barrett said. "Also, this is the first ever feature film shot in Kerry that will have its premiere at the Galway fleadh. In film terms it's the equivalent of Kerry getting to an AllIreland final!"
Pilgrim Hill will then go onto the Toronto Film Festival in September.
