'71, the acclaimed war thriller set during The Troubles starring Jack O'Connell and Love/Hate's Killian Scott and Charlie Murphy, has been nominated for a prestigious European Film Award.

The film is one of five titles tipped for the award which recognises debut full-length features from up and coming directors. '71 had the second highest opening weekend behind Gone Girl at the Irish box office last week, leading to an extended release for the film in Irish cinemas.

'71 stars Starred Up's Jack O'Connell as an inexperienced British squaddie who is accidentally abandoned by his unit during a riot in West Belfast and who finds himself engaged in a lethal cat and mouse game with the IRA and British Intelligence.

As well as Scott and Murphy, Irish actors David Keoghan, David Wilmot, Martin McCann and Richard Dormer also star in the movie.

The film's director Yann Demange and writer Gregory Burke will be in Dublin this Friday, October 17 for a Q&A in the IFI after the 6.30pm screening of '71. Tickets are available from the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477 or online at www.ifi.ie.
