Set in the wild mountains of Connemara, FOSCADH tells the story of friendless and guileless recluse John Cunliffe who is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of 28. When his over-cosseting parents pass away, John inherits mountain land that is in the way of a lucrative wind-farm development, and he is forced to navigate the choppy waters of romance, trust and vengeance for the first time. The ensuing drama is a taut and absorbing late coming-of-age tale from the North western tip of Europe. FOSCADH was the Official submission of Ireland in the Best International Feature Film category at the 2022 Academy Awards.

All films at CEFF are presented in their original language with English subtitles.
