The Kicking + Screening Media Group will launch its debut film, Celtic Soul, which screened at the 2017 K+S Soccer Film Festival in New York, on Tuesday, January 30.
Starring comedian Jay Baruchel and soccer journalist Eoin O’Callaghan, Celtic Soul follows the two friends on a quest to see Scottish club Celtic FC in Glasgow. Hilarious and poignant, it’s a story that spans 200 years of colorful history as the duo visit Jay’s ancestral home of Westport, Ireland, and then continue on to Glasgow, where they finally get to see Celtic FC play at their famed stadium, Celtic Park.
Celtic Soul, directed by Michael McNamara and produced by Markham Street Films, will be available in the United States on the following platforms: iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, GooglePlay, Sony Playstation, Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, Verizon, Frontier, Brighthouse, Dish, and DIRECTV.
“Markham Street Films is delighted that our film Celtic Soul will be part of the launch of the Kicking + Screening Media Group,” Markham Street Films Aaron Hancox and Judy Holm said. “Their experience and expertise are just what we were looking for to bring Celtic Soul to US audiences.”
“Celtic Soul is the perfect film to start with,” K+S Media Group’s Rachel Markus said. “You don't have to love the club Celtic or even the sport of soccer to appreciate the friendship, the journey, and the humbling nature of making it to one of the game’s hallowed grounds.”
Celtic Soul is the first film to be distributed by the K+S MG. Additional films will become available via a new K+S Media Group streaming channel, including previous festival favorites Anderson Monarchs and Argentina Fútbol Club.
