I woke up this morning to some great news. My Film ‘Shtax’ has received a nomination at the Underground Cinema Awards. The film got a nod in the Best Independent Feature Film category and I’m obviously delighted with the news. As well as being up for the gong, the film will be screened as part of the Underground Cinema Film Festival, so there will be another chance for people to see it. The Festival takes place in Dun Laoghaire in a variety of locations including the IMC on Sept 9th-11th. The Festival will be screening all the nominated films from all the categories as well as hosting masterclasses and what not. The awards themselves are being held on Sept 17th in Fitzpatricks Castle in Killiney. You can buy tickets for the event here.
We are the only documentary nominated in the ‘best feature’ category, the other four films nominated are 3 Crosses by Jason Figgis, Man Made Men by Alan Fegan, Portrait of A Zombie by Bing Bailey and Galway Film Fleadh Winner Charlie Casanova directed by Terry McMahon (read Terry’s very funny GFF Diary here)
You’d have to think that Charlie Casanova would be favourite but we have our fingers crossed and you never know but we are absolutely delighted with getting a nomination.
