Brendan Canty has forged his way as one of the most exciting and prolific Irish directors. His early career enjoyed large success with his video for Hozier's 'Take Me to Church' (which has since surpassed a billion views on Youtube along with two MTV VMA nominations), since then Brendan has gone on to direct consistently elegant and visually stunning music videos for top international artists (Dermot Kennedy, Talos) as well as commercials for brands such as Adidas, Sky Sports, Budweiser and Failte Ireland.
In 2017 Brendan directed 'For You' (starring Barry Keoghan) which went on to win a Kinsale Shark and was nominated for an IFTA. In 2019, Brendan directed a second short film - 'Christy', which he has since made into his debut feature with BBC Film and Screen Ireland, due for release in 2024. He recently won Best Director at Show Me Shorts Festival for his latest New Zealand based short film Atali'i O Le Crezent (Sons of the Crezent).
