O'Halloran to open Dublin gay film fest - RTE.
Acclaimed gay writer and actor Mark O'Halloran will officially open GAZE: The 15th Dublin International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, on Thursday 2 August. A highly warranted honour.
Adam & Paul is the only truly essential Irish film in the last twenty years... Garage was the main instigator of buzz at both Cannes and the Galway Film Fleadh... Mark O' Halloran, along with director Lenny Abrahamson, is one of the most vital voices in contemporary Irish cinema... Their characters exist within entirely fictional milieus, yet through the subtlety of their actions possess a consistently devastating relevance... The death of The Tall One anyone?
Huzzah Master O' Halloran! You do the township of Ennis proud!
Furthermore, I had a brief chat with him at the Galway Film Fleadh and he is a very sweet man.
