Film Company Seeks Ireland's Centenarians for Documentary

Snackbox Films have asked whether the IGS might be able to help them in identifying and contacting anyone 100 years of age or older who would be interested in being interviewed for a landmark documentary which is provisionally called The Centenarian Bounty.

The film's producers, Colm Nicell and Garry Walsh, would like to make contact with men and women the length and breadth of Ireland who have reached the milestone age of 100.  

Snackbox seeks to know what it means to have lived a century in Ireland and to be part of a very exclusive club of centenarians that are dotted the world over. The Centenarian Bounty will tell the stories of the extraordinary men and women of Ireland who have reached the ripe old age of 100.

The film is being directed by award-winning director Alex Fegan, whose widely acclaimed feature documentary 'The Irish Pub' was released in cinemas in 2013.

The Centenarian Bounty is funded by The Irish Film Board.  It is a non-narrative feature film (75 minutes long) that will play in cinemas, festivals and on RTE.  The producers are looking to film at least 30 centenarians and have so far filmed around 10 people. 

If you know of anyone -  aged 100 years or older - who would like to participate in this exciting project, please contact Colm Nicell or Gary Walsh:
