Irish writer/director Liam O Mochain’s 3rd feature film Lost & Found will be released in Irish cinemas from July 13th. The film recently won best foreign film at the 2018 Arizona Int. film festival following successful festival screenings at Dingle International film festival, IndieCork and a sold out world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh.
We are really looking forward to the film getting out there and seeing the reaction it gets from an Irish cinema audience.
Liam O Mochain, Writer/Director
Lost & Found is a feature film with 7 interconnecting stories set in and around a lost & found office of an Irish train station. All segments are inspired by true stories, share a theme of something lost or found, and characters that come in and out of each other’s lives. It was filmed over 5 years and completed in May 2017. O Mochain says “The cast, crew and post team were great to work with. They were very dedicated to the film and kept coming back every year to work on the next segment.
The ensemble cast includes Aoibhin Garrihy (The Fall, Fair City), Liam Carney (Red Rock, Outlander), Norma Sheahan (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope, Moone Boy), Sean Flanagan (Foil Arms & Hog), Anthony Morris (Games of Thrones), Seamus Hughes (Jimmy’s Hall, Klondike), Barbara Adair (Derry Girls), Brendan Conroy (Vikings), Tom O Suilleabhain (Maze), Olga Wehrly (The Clinic), Diarmuid Noyes (Borgia), Liam O Mochain (WC), Lynette Callaghan (Cold Feet), Daniel Costelloe (Albert Nobbs), and Donncha Crowley (Fr. Ted).
We are delighted that the film is getting an Irish release. Lost & Found was filmed over many years and it will be great to see what reaction this labour of love gets from cinema audiences.
