In association with access>CINEMA and with the support of the Arts Council, we are delighted to announce 6 additional screenings of The Merger, directed by Mark Grentell, in venues outside of Dublin during the festival.

There’s not a lot to do in Bodgy Creek, a struggling small town where the drought is making its presence felt and jobs and a decent way of life are hard to come by. It’s affected the dwindling fortunes of the town’s football club, which is struggling to field a team, until one former football star comes up with an inspired idea - to recruit the hamlet’s newest arrivals - in this charming Australian comedy.
