Due to extreme weather, Kissing Candice will now be screened on Monday 12th March at 8.45pm in the Light House Cinema, Smithfield

Filmed under the Irish Film Board’s Catalyst scheme, Aoife McArdle’s stylish debut feature centres around a small Irish seaside community.

It tells the story of Candice, a young woman who manages to be both volatile and vulnerable, and her relationship with a man who is sexy, fascinating, and involved with the wrong crowd. Her infatuation places her in an invidious position with her tough, policeman father, in an area where a young boy has disappeared. McArdle’s energetic debut is enhanced by Jon Clarke’s original score.

Aoife McArdle's incendiary debut is gathering major industry buzz and every frame of this film shows a new talent with talent to burn.
