AN IRISH film has been selected for the Cannes Film Festival for the first time in three years, writes Ken Sweeney.
'All Good Children', made by Irish company Element Pictures, is the first Irish film to be chosen for the prestigious Directors' Fortnight in Cannes since 'Garage' in 2007.
Based on a novel by Sam Taylor, the psychological thriller tells the story of two Irish teenagers, Dara and Eoin, who are sent to stay with their aunt in France after their mother's death.
The boys are played by young Dubliners Jack Gleeson and David Brazil,.
Post-production work was done in Ireland by Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound.
'All Good Children' will be in cinemas later this year or early next year.
