The Stag - Showing at Busan International Film Festival

The Irish comedy The Stag and mystery drama Love Eternal have been selected to screen as part of European Film Promotion's Opening Doors programme at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea next month.

The Opening Doors programme "invites Korean audiences to discover the best in new cinema from across Europe", with 23 European filmmakers travelling to South Korea to present their films and discuss their work at the festival.

Ireland will be represented by The Stag's director, John Butler, and Love Eternal's director, Brendan Muldowney.

Co-written by Butler and star Peter McDonald, The Stag follows a group of friends who head off camping to the West of Ireland before the big day.

The cast of The Stag also includes Hugh O'Conor, Andrew Scott, Brian Gleeson, Amy Huberman, Michael Legge and Andrew Bennett.

Adapted by director Muldowney from the Kei Oishi novel In Love with the Dead, Love Eternal tells the story of a death-obsessed young man and stars Robert de Hoog, Pollyana McIntosh, Amanda Ryan, Emma Eliza Regan and Declan Conlon.

The Busan International Film Festival runs from October 3 to 13.
