LAMB by Sinéad O’Loughlin one of four films awarded Focus Shorts from Screen Ireland
Four successful filmmaking teams have been chosen for Focus Shorts, the cornerstone short film scheme from Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland. The scheme, which will see €200,000 invested in the development of up and coming creative screen talent, will support four projects, each of which will receive €50,000 to go into production. With strong competition for the scheme, over 130 applications were received, and the final short films will go on to screen in festivals around the world after a Screen Ireland-supported World Premiere at home.
Lamb, written and directed by Sinead O’Loughlin and produced by Lara Hickey with Copper Alley Productions, was one of the four projects selected
Synopsis: An ordinary day takes a sinister turn for a woman and her child when a stranger walks into their isolated rural home.
