Regret (Short film Script)

Regret was written by Yvonne Coughlan in response to an idea by her great friend and film making colleague Maurice Supple.  This short film screenplay is an emotional father-son story of life’s colourful, passionate highs and its black and white lows; you see the gut punch coming, but it still catches your breath. The script is currently on its festival journey, and has won Best Short Script/ Screenplay at Golden Sparrow International Film Festival,  Tamil Nadu and Crown Wood International Film Festival, West Bengal, and received a Special Jury Award at Indo French International Film Festival. 

Regret was nominated for Best Short Script at Rome Independent Prisma Awards and was a Finalist at  Best Script Awards, London. 

"My hope for the story of this script is that it finds its way to someone, who hears its message in time to act on it, hence causing them to create a better life for themselves. That must surely be the grandest of all hopes for the writer, but I have no regrets in stating such lofty ideals." Yvonne Coughlan.

Our constant call for new friends, collaborators and change makers in general.
