The Fighting Irish

Short Film - Producer

Aideen, a young Irish girl, takes on the sport of boxing to prove to herself, and everyone around her that she could be the next Fighting Irish


A short film I produced whilst on the BFI Film Academy Craft Specialist Course hosted by The National Film & Television School (NFTS). 66 students were carefully selected for each role out of 300 applicants. Upon starting the course, the film maker had 11 days completer, pre-production, start principal photography and edit their films. Each film premiered to family, friends and industry professionals at the BFI Southbank in London.

- Official Selection at the British Urban Film Festival, London 2016
- Official Selection at the Portobello Film Festival, London 2016
