Irish Wins at Venice
12 Sep 2011 :
Irish actor Michael Fassbender wins Best Actor at 68th Venice Film Festival for his performance in ‘Shame’. DP Robbie Ryan wins for 'Wuthering Heights'.
‘Shame’ reunites McQueen and Fassbender for a second time since McQueen’s debut feature ‘Hunger’. The film shot in New York over six weeks in 2010, and was written by McQueen and Abi Morgan (Royal Wedding). It centres around Fassbender’s character Brandon, a successful businessman who suffers from a sexual addiction. The film co-stars Carey Mullingan (An Education) and James Badge Dale (The Departed). On receiving the award, Fassbender said, "It's just really nice when you take a chance and you do something that you think is relevant, you hope is relevant, and people respond the way you did."

Irish Cinematographer Robbie Ryan won the Best Cinematographer for Andrea Arnold’s adaptation of Wuthering Heights. Ryan, a graduate of IADT, had previously worked with Andrea Arnold in 2006 on her award-winning film 'Red Road'.
