Bad Day For The Cut Tours Northern Ireland
The locally produced film astounded large audiences after its appearance at Sundance Film Festival. Northern Irish fans will now get a chance to enjoy it on the big screen for themselves
Film Hub NI, in partnership with Belfast Film Festival, have just announced their support for the regional tour of locally produced thriller Bad Day For The Cut starring Nigel O’Neill and Susan Lynch.
Released by Kaleidoscope Entertainment, gritty revenge drama Bad Day For The Cut is the debut movie by director/writer Chris Baugh and producer/ writer Brendan Mullin, a Tyrone pair who run Six Mile Hill Productions. The film, which received investment from Northern Ireland Screen, tells the story of a mild-mannered middle-aged Irish farmer, who still lives at home with his mother, who sets off on a mission of revenge when the old lady is murdered.
Shot in Belfast and Templepatrick, the film wowed audiences at Sundance Film Festival (the movie became the first feature-length production made in Northern Ireland ever to be presented at the event) and Belfast Film Festival earlier this year, and now film lovers across Northern Ireland will have the chance to catch it as the film tours around each of the six counties.
After a run at Queen’s Film Theatre (20 – 26 Oct) the tour calls at:
The Picture House (Ballyclare) 28 Oct
Portrush Film Theatre 9 Nov
Subterranean Film Club (Omagh) 10 Nov
Dungannon Film Club 15 Nov
Fermanagh Film Club 15 Nov
Newcastle Community Cinema 18 Nov
Foyle Film Festival (L/Derry) 23 Nov
Tí Scannán (Mullaghbawn) 1 Dec
Some events will also feature Q&A session with Chris and Brendan (tbc) so audiences will get to hear the (literally) gory details of the process of making the film and taking it to the big screen.
Chris Baugh, the film’s Director said ‘We are incredibly excited to be bringing Bad Day For The Cut on the road with Film Hub NI and can’t wait to share the movie with audiences all over Northern Ireland.'
Richard Williams, CEO, Northern Ireland Screen said: 'Chris and Brendan are two very talented filmmakers whom we are very proud to have supported over recent years. Being selected for international festivals such as Sundance is not only testimony to this but also a strong validation of our New Talent Focus Scheme through which the film was developed. However, it is very important that local audiences also have the opportunity to see projects such as this on the big screen. We are delighted to hear that Film Hub NI will take Bad Day for the Cut out on the road; audiences are in for a real treat.'
