Pat Shortt’s directorial debut Warts and All has won Best Short Narrative International Short at Newport Beach International Film Festival 2022.

Filmed on location in Galway, Warts and All was written by Michelle Lehane, developed and produced by Lee Crowley and the team at Avenue Productions, and stars Danny McCafferty and Michelle Lehane.

Pat Shortt’s short film follows a single thirty something, Aron, played by Danny McCafferty, as he attempts to fall in love while struggling to hide his insecurities. 

"The essence of the story is to capture the Irish psyche, particularly the failure to emotionally engage,” says director Pat Shortt, when describing the film.

Speaking about the win he went onto say: "I am absolutely thrilled with the news that Warts and All Won the Best Short Narrative International, at the Newport Beach Film Festival. It was a beautiful script, Cast, crew, and production team to work with."

Lee Crowley, producer at Avenue Productions adds: "We would like to thank everyone that has voted for our short. We are honoured to receive this award from such a prestigious and special festival and congratulate all the other projects nominated in our category on their incredible work".
