It has been announced today that Starfish will make its Irish premiere at the 2017 Galway Film Fleadh, which will run from July 11th to 16th. Festival details will apparently be revealed on June 27th.
UK film 'Starfish' will play at Galway after an impactful small release in the UK. The true story of what happened to Tom and Nic Ray, a couple whose love was tested to the limit when Tom became ill, apparently overnight, with sepsis.
A huge positive for the release of the film so far has been the way that audiences have been able to learn about an illness that affects around 9,000 per year in hospitals in Ireland, and 150,000 in the UK, with a tragically high level of avoidable deaths.
Tom and Nic Ray have been campaigning vigorously for sepsis awareness since the first release of the film and will be attending the Galway screening to support the film, hoping to continue to spread the word.
