Yarnmaker sci-fi Cough will receive two screenings within a week of each other, at prestigious events in Poland.
The first screening will be at the 22nd Euroshorts - a well established, highly competitive event for short films from all over the world. Cough's screening will take place at the Kinoport Cinema on Wednesday 27th November 2013. Screening details for the 22nd Euroshorts event are here.
Cough will then be seen at Grand OFF, an exclusive film event where each film screened is an award nominee, with only five nominees in each category. Cough is nominated for Best Script, and Writer/Director Jason Kempnich is thrilled.
"It's a wonderful feeling to be nominated for Best Script. The script is the foundation on which everything is built. Just being nominated means so much - people have enjoyed the story and a writer can't ask for more than that," Kempnich said.
Cough's Grand OFF screening will take place at the Atlantic Cinema on Friday 6th December 2013. Screening details for the Grand OFF event are here.
More information on Cough including upcoming screenings, and the film's trailer, can be found at the Cough website.
Cough stars Robert Coleby (Tracks, Terra Nova, The Marine) and Christopher Sommers (Predestination, Terra Nova, The Horseman), with Natalie Trent and Dan Eady. Written and directed by Jason Kempnich, it features moody cinematography by Graeme McMahon and evocative music by Davin Patterson.
Set a few years from today, Cough explores a dystopian future where a pandemic has forced governments worldwide to heavily curtail the movements of citizens for their own survival. In the rush to survive, civil liberties are forgotten. The film asks the question - how far is too far, and what if government wanted to keep their new power? Sometimes you have to fight to be the change you want to see.
