Nigel O'Neill as aggrieved farmer Donal in Bad Day For The Cut, which will be touring screens across the north

HAVING wowed audiences at the Sundance Film Festival and the Belfast Film Festival, locally made revenge thriller Bad Day For The Cut will now be hitting the road for a series of cinema screenings throughout the north.

The excellent Chris Baugh written and directed film follows mild-mannered farmer Donal (Nigel O'Neill) from the sticks to the big bad city as he embarks on an increasingly violent investigation into a botched break-in.

Bad Day For The Cut is at QFT Belfast from today until October 26, with the 8.30pm screening on Tuesday October 24 to be introduced by Baugh and writer/producer Brendan Mullin.

The Film Hub NI and Belfast Film Festival-sponsored tour then kicks off at The Picture House in Ballyclare on October 28 (Chris Baugh and Nigel O'Neill will do a Q&A at Ballyclare Town Hall from 7pm) before moving on to Portrush Film Theatre (November 9), Omagh's Subterranean Film Club (November 10), Dungannon Film Club and Fermanagh Film Club (both November 15), Newcastle Community Cinema (November 18), the Foyle Film Festival in Derry on November 23 and Tí Scannán in Mullaghbawn on December 1.

Bad Day For The Cut will also be available via on demand platforms from October 23, with a DVD release to follow in January 2018.
