Oscar nominated director Louis Marcus (1798 agus O’Shin, Famine) has been awarded the Screen Director Guild of Ireland and Foras na Gaeilge special prize for outstanding work with the Irish language at the SDGI annual meeting which took place in Fallon and Byrne in Dublin last night.

Louis Marcus was presented with a plaque and a prize of €5,000 by fellow directors including German director Oliver Hirschbeigel (Five Minutes Of Heaven, Downfall), Dearbhla Walsh (Little Dorrit, The Tudors), Paddy Breathnach (Red Mist, Shrooms), Lenny Abrhamson (What Richard Did, Garage) and Ciaran Donnelly (Titanic; Blood and Steel, Stardust).

Speaking at the event Louis said, "For myself, I'm greatly honoured to receive this award from my fellow directors and Foras na Gaeilge. But I think it also highlights the tremendous support of the Irish-language sector for serious documentary production from the pioneering days of Gael Linn to the TG4 of today."

Deirdre Davitt, Programme Manager for the Arts, Foras na Gaeilge said “Foras na Gaeilge would like to publicly acknowledge the enormous contribution Louis Marcus has made to the Irish language film and television sector over the past 50 years and to thank the SDGI for the opportunity to do so.
