Wildcard Distribution Releases Trailer to Celebrate 10th Birthday

The Irish film distributor Wildcard Distribution has released a trailer to celebrate its 10th birthday.

The trailer takes a look back over the last decade with highlights from a selection of the films that the distributor brought to cinemas including the IFTA Best Film winners Michael Inside, Black 47 and Wolfwalkers as well as Box Office hits The Young Offenders, Deadly Cuts, and Cardboard Gangsters. The trailer also takes a look forward to upcoming releases for 2023 including Lakelands and Sunlight, both of which have their UK premieres this week at the Glasgow Film Festival.

Established in March 2013, Wildcard has since acquired and released over 100 quality Irish and international films in Ireland and the UK and has become one of Ireland’s most successful film distributors releasing some of the biggest Irish titles of the 10 years.

Speaking about the 10th anniversary, Patrick O’Neill, MD Wildcard Distribution said “We established Wildcard Distribution a decade ago with the aim of bringing quality independent films to cinema audiences across Ireland and the UK.  It’s been especially rewarding to have worked with so many talented Irish filmmakers and I’m delighted we’ve been able to contribute to current Irish film landscape which is going from strength to strength.  I’m really excited about what’s next for the industry and for Wildcard.”

Wildcards slate over the last decade has included a wide range of genres including award-winning dramas (Lakelands, Wildfire), horrors (The Hole In The Ground, You Are Not My Mother), comedies (Deadly Cuts, Extra Ordinary), family films (Puffin Rock And The New Friends) and documentaries (Katie, Bobby Sands 66 Days, Lyra).

Upcoming releases for 2023 include Lakelands (set for a 5th May release), Apocalypse Clown, Sunlight, Double Blind, and Puffin Rock And The New Friends which are all scheduled for release later this year.
