Jameson Dublin International Film Festival Jury prizes announced!

From thye 19th to the 29th of March 2015, the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival rocked the city. After 130+ films and guests including Russell Crowe, Alan Rickman and Dame JULIE ANDREWS the festival has come to a close once more. And, quite rightly, that means its time for prizes.

I was very lucky to be part of the Dublin Film Critics circle jury again this year, presided over by Tara Brady from the Irish Times. Also on the panel for 2015 were fine folks like Nicola Timmins (Average Film Reviews), Bogen Hayes (Movies.ie), David O'Mahoney (Access Cinema), Donald Clarke (Irish Times), John Maguire (Sunday Business Post) and Paul Whittington (Irish Independent). We watched a lot of movies and then tried to decide which of them deserved one of these natty awards.

After many deliberations, these were the winners in the 13 categories.

BEST DIRECTOR – Ruben Östlund – Force Majeure

BEST SCREENPLAY - Yuri Bykov, The Fool

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY - Lyle Vincent, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

BEST DOCUMENTARY – Cobain: Montage of Heck

BEST ACTOR – Cliff Curtis, The Dark Horse

BEST ACTRESS – Nina Hoss, Phoenix

BEST IRISH FILM - Glassland

BEST IRISH DOCUMENTARY – Fortune’s Wheel

BEST DEBUT - Chaitanya Tamhane, Court

SPECIAL JURY PRIZE – A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Contemplating Existence

SPECIAL JURY PRIZE – Eden

SPECIAL JURY PRIZE – Tu Dors Nicole

SPECIAL JURY PRIZE – 10,000 KM

At least a few of these films will be getting a release during 2015, with Force Majeure (which is amazing) and the Cobain doc arriving over the next couple of weeks. Do check any of them out, they're all worth a look.
