TIGER RAID: World premiere announced for 2016 Tribeca Film Festival
The world premiere of Tiger Raid has been announced for the 15th Tribeca Film Festival in April.
After months of eager anticipation, we have exciting news – Damien’s feature film Tiger Raid is heading to Tribeca Film Festival for its world premiere. The 15th edition of the festival takes place in New York between 13 – 24 April.
The film has been selected as one of six world premieres for the ‘Midnight’ section of the festival, which features “the best in horror, comedy, action, and camp.” The other films are Holidays, Fear, Inc, Here Alone, King Cobra and Rebirth.
Tiger Raid is the first feature for Dixon Baxi Evans Film (formerly Story Film) a “Visionary Film and Television Production Company” and is directed by Simon Dixon, produced by Gareth Coulam Evans and exec produced by Aporva Baxi.
A dark and “deadly” thriller, featuring “two mercenaries bound together by a job, hounded by demons from their pasts and unable to face the truth of who they are”, the film stars Damien in a leading role in the film as Paddy, alongside Brian Gleeson as Joe, Sophia Boutella as Shadha and Rory Fleck-Byrne as Ruby. It is based on the Play ‘Radio Luxembourg’ by Irish writer Mick Donnellan, who co-wrote the screenplay, and has a film score by award-winning composer Dean Valentine.
From the first thrilling glimpses of Tiger Raid and Damien’s character to our most recent look at its atmospheric imagery and stylish titles, the film has been revealed to have a compelling and shadowy tone, and there is every indication that we’re in for a profoundly affecting, intense, evocative, haunting, incredibly stylish movie with exceptional production values.
We’re thrilled and delighted the feature is receiving a world premiere at such a prestigious film festival, huge congratulations to Damien, the cast, creators and entire Tiger Raid team.
Festival tickets for single screenings go on sale 29 March, but advance ticket packages and festival passes are available to buy now. For more ticket info, visit the Tribeca Film Festival website.
