Screen Ireland's Rosie will have its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Starring Sarah Greene (Dublin Oldschool), the drama tells the story of a mother trying to protect her family after their landlord sells their rented home and they become homeless.
The film is directed by Paddy Breathnach, whose previous effort Viva took home top honours at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival in 2016 and was shortlisted for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Meanwhile, The Commitments author Roddy Doyle wrote the screenplay.
Along with Greene, Moe Dunford also stars in Rosie. The film premieres at TIFF in September before an Irish cinema release in September.
Rosie will screen at TIFF as part of their Contemporary World Cinema programme which "provides a global snapshot of the best cinema from around the world."
