An Bronntanas among Boston winners
03 Mar 2015 18:06
The feature film version of the recent TG4 thriller series An Bronntanas (The Gift) has been honoured with the Jury's Special Award at the Boston Irish Film Festival.
-
Producer Ciarán Ó Cofaigh said: "We were very proud of the success of the series when it was broadcast recently on TG4, but it's apparent that the film version has its own legs."
-
He continued: "The production of An Bronntanas was an enormous challenge and we believe we have achieved this production to a high international standard.
-
"Winning this award in Boston and the film's selection for many other festivals will further promote the film and the Irish language."
-
Directed by Tom Collins (Kings), and starring Dara Devaney (Na Cloigne), Owen McDonnell (Single Handed) and John Finn (Cold Case), An Bronntanas tells the story of the crew of a local independent lifeboat in Connemara who find over a million euro worth of drugs on an abandoned fishing boat.
-
It has recently been screened in Barbados and Washington, and will soon be shown in Chicago and Rome.
