“Love in Kilnerry” is set for its Bi-Coastal North American Premier at the San Diego Intl Film Festival on Oct 17 @ 2pm (Pendry Hotel) and Oct 19 @ 1pm (ArcLight Cinema) and at the New Hampshire Film Festival Oct 17 5:15pm (The Music Hall, Portsmouth, NH).
It was completed in Summer 2019 and has already gained 23 international awards and 11 nominations for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography. The corky, warm-hearted comedy, edited by John Wilson (Downton Abbey), casting by Kimberly Graham (Homeland), an original score by Randy Edelman (Last of the Mohicans), and colored by Company 3 (Star Wars, A Star is Born) had over 380,000 views on the trailer in the first few months.
The film has consistently sold out theaters and has won awards at each festival thus far. Daniel Keith wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the film and is nominated for the Chris Brinker Award at SDIFF for first time directors who push the envelope in the cinematic world. Daniel won Best Director at Madrid International, Jersey Shore, and the International Independent Film Awards along with seven Best Screenplay Awards for Love in Kilnerry.
PLOT: The elderly residents of a small remote town panic when the EPA announces mandatory changes to their chemical plant could cause a dramatic increase in their sexual libido. The town Sheriff (Daniel Keith) struggles to maintain order and decency but mayhem ensues.
Daniel had originally written the story as an Irish play and was workshopped by New York theater actors for all of 2016 at the Manhattan Theater Club Studios. It was later adapted into a screenplay and shot in Portsmouth, NH. The producers are currently seeking a sales agent and distribution. The trailer is being over-dubbed in Japanese and Mandarin for the Asian market. More information and the cast interview can be found at LoveInKilnerry.com or IMdb.com. Cast and producers will be at both festivals.
