Irish Film: Watch first clip from Michael Lennox’s TIFF playing A Patch of Fog

The Fyzz Facility, via Deadline, has released the first clip from Oscar nominated Northern Irish director Michael Lennox’s A Patch of Fog. The film is currently playing the Discovery section at the Toronto Film International Festival.

A Patch of Fog is a psychological thriller about a celebrated novelist and television personality who finds his reputation on the line and his life invaded by a lonely security guard when caught shoplifting.

The film stars Stephen Graham (Get Santa), Conleth Hill (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), Arsher Ali (Four Lions), and Ian McElhinney (Leap Year).

A Patch of Fog is the feature debut of Lennox, who was Academy Award nominated for his short film Boogaloo and Graham last year. The screenplay,  by Michael McCartney and John Cairns, was developed through Northern Ireland Screen’s New Talent Focus scheme. Robert Jones (The Hooligan Factory), Wayne Marc Godfrey (The Anomaly), and David Gilbery (X Moor) produce, with funding from the UK’s The Fyzz Facility, the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, and the British Film Institute.

LA-based 13 Films has acquired the international sales rights for the film, which it is attempting to sell at TIFF.
