Brendan Muldowney’s film has won the inaugural Fresh Blood Award at the recent Black Bear Film Fest in Warsaw.

The film premiered earlier this year at the Galway Film Fleadh in July, and has now screened at over at over fifty festivals and markets worldwide, including Sitges and Busan, one of the largest film festivals in Asia.Screen International described the film as “a beguiling and deftly enigmatic tale of dark and haunted love …”, with The Hollwood Reporter calling it “…a blackly comic tragedy and macabre melodrama rolled into one.”Featuring the Emmy-nominated Dutch actor, Robert de Hoog (‘Skin’), and Pollyanna McIntosh (‘The Woman’), and based on the Japanese novel “In Love With The Dead”, from acclaimed author Kei Oishi (Apartment 1303, The Last Supper), the film centres on an isolated and death-fixated young man who tries to make sense of the world, and his existence, in the only way he knows how…by getting closer to death.

‘Love Eternal’ was produced by Conor Barry, Morgan Bushe and Macdara Kelleher at Fastnet Films, with Luxembourg co-producers – Red Lion , Dutch co-producers – Rinkel Film and TO Entertainment from Japan, with support from the Irish Film Board, the Film Fund Luxembourg and the Netherlands Film Fund.

It was shot by Tom Comerford, edited by Mairead McIvor, production designed by Owen Power, with music by Dutch composer, Bart Westerlaken.

The Fresh Blood Award is open to first and second feature films. The Black Bear Filmfest is the first genre-film festival in Poland, with a mission to screen a selection of high quality, contemporary genre films, including thrillers, horror, art house and animation.

French company, REEL SUSPECTS, are handling world sales. It is expected Irish audience will have an opportunity to see the film in 2014.
