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.

'Fudge 44' is a mockumentary about six puppets in a financially impoverished Tokyo children's puppet theatre who, locals believe, came to life and robbed a nearby bank to avoid being put out of business.

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