Description

A coy and funny story with as many twists and turns as its stunning setting, the Antrim Coast Road.

Filmed against the gorgeous backdrop of the North Coast, Silicone Valerie stars Ian McElhinney as a priest who meets temptation in the form of a young woman (Donna Annesley). Valerie wants to enlist the priest's help as she aims to be crowned winner of the  Miss Conneybeg beauty pageant. 

Notes

Part of Première, a short film production scheme designed to showcase local, Northern Irish film-making talent. It provided a training opportunity for industry new entrants and more experienced crew alike, offering film-makers a global audience and a stepping stone in their careers.
