Formed in 2012 as McGoldrick/McGuigan Productions, What's Next Films is a Northern Ireland-based production outlet with a primary focus on independent film and television. Spearheaded by Margaret McGoldrick and Leo McGuigan, in its short lifespan What's Next has been responsible for a handful of award-winning short films, including the Western drama Cody and the war thriller Waiting Game. 2014 saw a milestone in the company's history when What's Next produced their first feature film, the hotly anticipated Northern Irish slasher thriller Braxton, featuring a sprawling ensemble cast. The company is actively seeking international distribution for Braxton, with a targeted release date of October 2015.
In the meantime, Margaret and Leo continue to work with a wide and dynamic range of local and international talent to develop exciting and innovative new projects.
