Irish short film SCRATCH will premiere at New York’s prestigious Tribeca Film Festival

Warrior Films are pleased announce that the RTE / Galway Film Centre funded satirical short film SCRATCH, Directed by Philip Kelly, has been selected for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. SCRATCH will be screened as part of the Handle With Care section of the Festival’s shorts programme.

Commenting on the announcement, co-writer and producer of SCRATCH Liam Ryan said, “We are absolutely thrilled that our short film has been accepted at this most prestigious festival.”

Established in 2007 Warrior Films produces feature films, documentaries and short films which have screened at festivals around the world. SCRATCH is the third Warrior Films project to feature at the Tribeca Film Festival.

SCRATCH tells the story of Eoin who works the night shift in a quiet petrol station. His main source of distraction night after night is regular customer Ger who believes he has a system for picking winning scratch cards. Things take an unexpected turn with the arrival of a masked armed robber starting a chain of events that neither Eoin nor Ger could have predicted.

SCRATCH features an impressive cast of rising Irish talent starring Love/Hate’s Ian Lloyd Anderson (LOVE/HATE, STANDBY) and Stephen Jones (POCKET FULL OF STONES, LOVE/HATE) Sam Keeley (RAW, WHAT RICHARD DID).

The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 16th – 27th. The full programme of short films at the Tribeca Film Festival is available here.
