Joy to the World

Posted December 1, 2011

Our latest short film JOY has just had its premiere at the Cork Film Festival, where it screened in both the International and Irish competitions. Written and directed by Colm Quinn and produced by Neil Wallace and Emmet Fleming, the film stars Jane McGrath, Aoife Duffin and Derbhle Crotty. Huge thanks to DoP Kate McCullough and all the crew for doing a fantastic job.


Joy, shotin beautiful widescreen, finds a teenage mother facing up an anticipated, but still heartbreaking, trauma. The film never shouts when it can whisper. Its familiar story is archetypal in its poignancy – DONALD CLARKE
