A Date For Mad Mary, which features local actress Seána Kerslake in the lead role, is one of three Irish films confirmed for the long list for the European Film Awards 2017.

The European Film Academy and EFA Productions this morning announced the titles of the 51 films on this year’s EFA Feature Film Selection, the list recommended for a nomination for the European Film Awards 2017.

As well as the highly acclaimed A Date for Mad Mary, The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Return to Montauk, will be flying the flag for Ireland along with Lady Macbeth, produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly.

Released to Irish cinemas last September, A Date For Mad Mary enjoyed huge success at home and abroad with top prizes at the Galway Film Fleadh and Irish Film London.

The film tells the story of ‘Mad’ Mary McArdle (Kerslake) returning to Drogheda after a short spell in prison for something she’d rather forget.

Back home, everything and everyone has changed.

Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honour. When Charlene refuses Mary a ‘plus one’ on the grounds that she probably couldn’t find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong.

Her attempts at dating are a disaster and she winds up feeling more alone… until she meets Jess and everything changes.

Over the next few weeks, the 3,000+ members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the categories European Film, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenwriter.

The nominations will then be announced on 4 November at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain. A seven-member jury will decide on the awards recipients in the categories European Cinematographer, Editor, Production Designer, Costume Designer, Hair & Make-up Artist, Composer and Sound Designer.

The 30th European Film Awards will take place on 9th December in Berlin.
