‘The Shamrock Spitfire’: 101 Films International Strikes Deals


EXCLUSIVE: 101 Films International has struck a slew of offers for The Shamrock Spitfire, the film concerning the youngest wing commander within the historical past of the RAF.

With EFM approaching, the pic has offered to Australia and New Zealand’s Rialto, Japan’s Aya Pro, South Korea’s Scene & Sound, Iceland and Denmark’s Smile, and 101 Films within the UK and North America.

Coming from Ian Higgins and Dominic Higgins, Shamrock Spitfire, which made the official choice on the Cannes World Film Festival 2023 and can launch on the Berlinale, tells the story of World War II RAF fighter Brendan “Paddy” Finucane.

“Ahead of our official launch of this special movie at Berlinale it is gratifying to see a number of early sales with many more anticipated,” stated 101 VP of International Sales Eoghan Burke.

Finucane was the youngest wing commander within the historical past of the RAF and some of the celebrated Irish fighters within the conflict. The pic will observe the Irishman as he goals of being a flyer, turning into one of many first to enlist within the Royal Air Force as Europe’s future hangs by a thread.

Pic stars Shane O’Regan (Control), Chris Kaye (All Creatures Great and Small), Bethany Billy (Pan Tau), Eoin Lynch (Poldark), Emily Outred (Johnny English Strikes Again) and Carl Wharton (White Crow). It is produced by Nigel Martin Davey and John Dawson for the Higgins’ Pixel Revolution Films. Trevor Beattie (Moon, Six Minutes to Midnight) is exec producer.
