Well done to WFT member,  producer and founder of Irish Dream Films, Bernadette McCarthy, whose uplifting feature film, Love On The Line (2020)  will have its World Network Premiere on RTE 1 on December 19th. But don’t worry if you’re choc-a-bloc over Christmas, as it will be on the RTE Player for 30 days afterward too – and accessible from around the world. This film was written, directed and produced by an Irish woman, from Dublin, and features an original Irish score.

This contemporary Irish emigrant story is set on the West coast of America, and centres around two sisters from Ireland who moved to San Francisco to start a new life.  It explores the universal quest to find enduring love and how the internet and online dating are radically altering how we live, how we date and how we communicate.
