'71, the new Belfast-set thriller whose cast includes Love/Hate stars Charlie Murphy and Killian Scott, has been selected to screen at next month's Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

'71, which opens in Ireland on Friday October 10, tells the story of a British soldier who is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot in Belfast in 1971.

The cast of the film also includes Jack O'Connell, Paul Anderson, Richard Dormer, Sean Harris, Martin McCann and David Wilmot.

The film marks the feature directing debut of BAFTA-winning television director Yann Demange (Criminal Justice, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and was written by playwright Gregory Burke.

'71 will screen in Toronto as part of its Discovery programme.

The festival runs from September 4 to 14.
