Film In Cork 2018 Short Film Award Winner Announced
29 Jun 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The winner of the 2018 Film In Cork Short Film Award has been announced. Following an extensive search and selection process, Mairéad Kiernan’s ‘The Shift’ has been chosen as the winner of the 2018 Short Film Award, valued at €8,000.

‘The Shift’ was written by Mairéad Kiernan, directed by Megan K.Fox, and produced by Bankhouse Productions.

There were 90 scripts submitted for the April deadline, which was whittled down to 16 for a one-day development session on May 5th. The session was delivered by the script judges, Oonagh Kearney & Pierce Ryan.

After receiving revised versions of the script post-feedback, the judges were tasked with the job of selecting four projects to go forward for interview. The interview panel, comprised of Writer/Directors Oonagh Kearney & Rebecca Daly and Producer Deirdre Levins, had a very challenging job selecting a winner.

Speaking on behalf of the panel, Oonagh Kearney said:

“The Shift” brims with personality, wit and humour. It has a cracking lead character and well-defined story world. We feel this coming-of-age bilingual story will make for a powerful and memorable short film. We look forward to helping the team realize their vision for this project.”

The idea is that the production team of ‘The Shift’ will benefit from the experience and talent of the interview panel in terms of mentoring support as they begin the process of translating the script to the screen.

The Script Award was supported by the Arts Offices of Cork City Council & Cork County Council, with additional support from the Tomar Trust.
