A film produced in Northern Ireland has been selected for one of the world's biggest film festivals.
Jump, which is set on New Year's Eve amidst Derry's Walls, has been chosen as part of the Contemporary World Cinema programme at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month.
The festival is regarded as one of the top cinema showcases - alongside Cannes, Venice and Berlin - and is considered a great launch pad for the North American market.
Jump stars local actors including Martin McCann (Killing Bono, Whole Lotta Sole), Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations), Ciaran McMenamin (Saving the Titanic), Charlene McKenna, Lalor Ruddy and Valene Kane.
The film is directed by Kieron J Walsh and produced by Brendan J Byrne, of production company Hotshot Films, alongside co-producing partner Katie Holly of Blinder Films.
The film follows four twenty-somethings - crime boss daughter Greta, drifter Pearse, small time crook Johnny and frustrated shop assistant Marie - whose lives intertwine as the clock ticks down to midnight.
Jump received funding from Northern Ireland Screen supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
