The Captors – Festivals update

November 3, 2016

Kidnap thriller The Captors continues its successful festival run.

In July the short film, written and directed by Chris Baugh and produced by Brendan Mullin, was well received at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh before going on to play as part of Irish Screen America 2016 in both New York and Los Angeles during September and October.

More recently the film also screened at this year’s San Francisco Irish Film Festival and long running LA based Shriekfest, now in its sixteenth year.

The Captors follows a trio of kidnappers who face an unexpected dilemma when their wealthy target turns the tables. It stars Nigel O’Neill, Stuart Graham, Jonathan Harden, Lacy Moore and Seamus O’Hara.

Funded by NI Screen/BFI as part of their ‘Short’s to Features’ programme, a feature length screenplay is currently in development.
