Happy New Year!

Jan 04, 2019

Happy New Year folks! 2018 was a good year for Failsafe. We officially launched our sister company Strangelove and produced two Screen Ireland films 'Low Tide' and 'The Trap' which premiered at the Cork Film Festival in November. But 2019 is shaping up to to be even better!

We're producing a new short film later this month- 'Moth' directed by Allyn Quigley; our feature film 'Double Blind' is in development with Screen Ireland, and Paddy Slattery's debut feature film 'Let Your Guard Down' is in post-production. So lots of exciting things to come!
