‘Eden’ and ‘New Boy’ Win at Tribeca
02 May 2008 :
Eileen Walsh in Eden
Steph Green’s IFTA-winning short ‘New Boy’ and Declan Recks’ ‘Eden’ have scooped awards at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York, which takes place from 23rd April – 4th May. ‘Eden’ actress Eileen Walsh picked up a Best Actress gong, while ‘New Boy’ was named Best Narrative Short.

‘Eden’, based on Eugene O’Brien’s award-winning play, is a meditation on married life in a claustrophobic, provincial town and is the second collaboration between Declan Recks and Eugene O'Brien since multi award winning TV series ‘Pure Mule’. The film, produced by Samson Films, screened as part of the World Narrative Competition with 11 other films from established filmmakers, including Shane Meadows’ ‘This Is England’.

IFB funded short ‘New Boy’, produced by Tamara Anghie and Zanzibar Films, competed against 79 international shorts including a short penned by ‘Babel' writer Guillermo Arriaga. The Best Narrative Short accolade comes with a $5,000 cash prize.

’New Boy’ already won the Audience Award for Best International Short at last year’s Corona Cork Film Festival and received a Special Mention at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

“Recognition in the form of major awards at key international film festivals is very important to the Irish film industry, as it raises the profile for smaller films and helps them sell to territories all over the world.“ said Irish Film Board Chair, James Morris. “We’re delighted that Irish film continues to gain international acclaim with new films building on the recent success of ‘Once’, ‘Garage’ and ‘Kings’.”
