New Podcast! Scannain Podcast (2019) #20!

It’s time for the Scannain podcast!

This week, editor Niall Murphy returns to host the podcast, joining Jay Coyle and I to discuss the week in film. Jay watched Wages of Fear and Persepolis for the first time. Niall has been to Cannes, but regales us with some of the films that he saw outside the festival, including The Fate of the Furious.

A lot of the news this week comes direct from Cannes, including good news for a whole host of Irish filmmakers. Lorcan Finnegan’s Vivarium won the Distribution Prize at Cannes Film Festival’s Critics’ Week. Ireland and Luxumberg launched a joint female-focused development fund. Screen Ireland announced four productions as part of their inaugural POV funding scheme.

The top ten:

  1. Breakthrough
  2. Wonder Park
  3. Dumbo
  4. Long Shot
  5. A Dog’s Journey
  6. Paw Patrol Mighty Pups
  7. The Hustle
  8. Avengers: Endgame
