Heresy Films is a new division of Heresy devoted to developing and producing imaginative art films and music videos. In July 2021 Heresy Films will begin production on a full-length film titled The Island of Saints, directed by Eric Fraad. The film features the medieval/jazz fusion ensemble Anakronos and a cast of actors. The film is based on the album and back story to The Red Book of Ossory which centres on the notorious witch trial of Dame Alice Kyteler and the burning of Petronilla de Meath in 1324 in Kilkenny.
