Aoibhinn Garihy & Anthony Morris in 'Lost & Found'

A film which was shot mainly in Laois will have its homecoming next month.

Lost & Found, Irish Writer/Director Liam O Mochain’s 3rd feature film, will be in the Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, on October 3 at 8pm following it’s critically acclaimed Irish cinema release in July/August.

The film recently won best foreign film at the 2018 Arizona Internation film festival following its successful festival screenings at Dingle Internation film festival, IndieCork and it’s sold out world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh.

‘Lost & Found’ will also be released in UK cinemas on October 19.

Liam O Mochain said: “We are delighted that Lost & Found will screen in the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise. We had such great support from the people of Laois while making this film over the past 7 years.

“I am really looking to forward to the people of Laois getting an opportunity to engage with the film and participating in a Q&A after the screening.”

‘Lost & Found’ is a feature film with seven interconnecting stories set in and around a lost and found office of an Irish train station – mainly in Portarlington.

All segments are inspired by true stories, share a theme of something lost or found, and characters that come in and out of each other’s lives.

The ensemble cast includes Norma Sheahan (Moone Boy), Liam Carney (Red Rock), Aoibhin Garrihy (The Fall), Anthony Morris (Games of Thrones), Seamus Hughes (Jimmy’s Hall), Liam O Mochain (WC), Brendan Conroy (Vikings), Barbara Adair (Grabbers), Sean Flanagan (Foil Arms & Hog), Mary McEvoy (Glenroe), Diarmuid Noyes (Borgia), Lynette Callaghan (Cold Feet), Olga Wehrly (The Clinic), Daniel Costelloe (Albert Nobbs) and Donncha Crowley (Fr. Ted).
