Made in Dublin
Independent Irish film Made in Dublin has received the Best Script award at the Snowdance Film Festival in Essen, Germany. The festival highlights films with minimal state funding.

Made in Dublin has received the Jury award for Best Script at this year's Snowdance Film Festival in Essen, Germany. There were a total of four awards in the feature film category including Best Director, Best Film, Best Young Director and Best Script, with Made in Dublin screenwriters Chris Harris and Jack Armstrong taking home the script award.

Made in Dublin is directed by Armstrong and produced by Melissa Lawlor for Revolution Media and Quanta Capital. The film follows Finn (Stuart Cullen), an aspiring actor who makes a living working in a restaurant in Dublin. 

The plot is described as follows: “In a city of countless stories, lives collide and destinies intertwine. A wannabe actor, down on his luck, waiting tables, desperate for his big break. A washed up and strung out movie director, unwanted by Hollywood and his beautiful ‘A list’ wife. A lonely drag Queen ready to trust again, to love and be loved. And a femme fatale working through her ‘Daddy’ issues in her own unique way. All set on a course of destruction and all heading each other's way.”

The independent Irish feature stars Paudge Behan (Veronica Guerin), Maya O’Shea (Verdigris), Jonathan Delaney Tynan (Gretel and Hansel) and newcomer Stuart Cullen. The film was executive produced by Mel Sutcliffe.

"We are delighted to pick up this important award,” said writer/director Jack Armstrong. “It’s a fabulous festival, the audience actively and enthusiastically engaged in the Q&A after our screening and there are daily industry events to attend”.

The Snowdance Film Festival 2024 awards ceremony took place in the Astra Theatre cinema in Essen. The week-long festival included international feature films, documentaries, and short films, as well as industry workshops and discussions. The festival was founded in 2013 with the intention of supporting independent  films with little or no state funding.
