Paul Mescal stars in Drifting

The trailer for Irish short film Drifting, starring Normal People's Paul Mescal, dropped today.

It'll premiere at this year's Galway Film Fleadh, which will be held online later this month.

Drifting follows the story of best friends Cian (Mescal) and Pat (Michael Inside's Dafhyd Flynn). 

They've been joined at the hip since they were kids and have the run of their small town in the midlands.

Cian is content to coast through a life of booze and casual hook-ups, while Pat has begun to grow weary of his surroundings.

The short film takes place over 24 hours, as Cian's behaviour sends Pat over the edge.

Drifting was filmed in Longford last year, and was written, produced and directed by Robert Higgins and Patrick McGivney.

As quoted by buzz.ie, Higgins said, 'We’re delighted to be premiering Drifting at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.'

'This film has been a real passion project for us from the beginning and the whole community of Granard rowed in behind us to help make it a reality. We’re really excited to share it with everyone.'

McGivney added, 'Drifting is a very personal film for both of us and bringing it to life with such a talented cast and crew has been an incredible experience.'

Drifting premieres as part of the, 'Irish Talent: New Shorts Six: Fiction,' programme at the Galway Film Fleadh.

A limited number of tickets are still available.
