Florida Premiere For Irish Film

james macgregor'Fudge 44', the second feature film from Irish director Graham Jones, will be premiered at the Delray Beach Film Festival in Florida which takes place from 8 to 12 March.

Jones previously directed the low budget independent Irish feature film 'How To Cheat In The Leaving Certificate', a heist movie about six friends devising a way to get the exam papers from the Department of Education's warehouse in Athlone.

The film has been nominated in the Film section of the 2006 Irish Digital Media Awards, which take place on 1 February.
