Irish horror is having a moment and as big fans of the genre, we’re thrilled to see films like The Hole in the Ground and The Boys From County Hell pick up notice overseas, both for the qualities of the films themselves and for the talents involved in making them. Joining their ranks soon will be changeling chiller You Are Not My Mother, the debut feature film of Kate Dolan, director of Catcalls and many a class local music video on the Irish scene. The film is set for its world premiere later this year as an Official Selection of the Toronto International Film Festival. It will be shown as part of the prestigious festival’s Midnight Madness programme, a raucous night screening the best in action, horror, shock and fantasy cinema. The film is one of only six selected for Midnight Madness this year from around the world.

Kate Dolan is one of the fastest rising directors working in Ireland at the moment.
