PJ Dillon Wins Cinematography Award for ‘Kings’
30 Oct 2007 :
Kings
Tom Collins bi-lingual feature 'Kings', photographed by cinematographer PJ Dillon, has picked up the Kodak Award for Best Cinematography at the 15th Hamptons International Film Festival.

‘Kings’, shot on location in Belfast, London and Dublin in 2006, stars Colm Meaney (Intermission, Layer Cake), Donal O’Kelly and Brendan Conroy.

The film follows of a group of ex-pats who left the West of Ireland for London in the mid 1970s, hoping for a better life overseas. Thirty years on they reunite to mark the passing of the youngest of the group and reflect on how life has treated them since they left their home country.

‘Kings’ was shot on multi-format, using Super 8 and Super 16, with some of the filming completed on handheld cameras.

“I’m delighted that we won,” PJ Dillon told IFTN. “Tom Collins chose a brave style of filming, a very fluid style, for ‘Kings’ and it’s great to see it recognized.”

The jury commented the film was chosen: “For the beauty and texture, intermixing the past and present.”

Irish director Rebecca Daly’s IFTA-winning short ‘Joyriders’ also screened at the Hamptons fest. The 16 minute short, produced by Rachel Lysaght, follows a young girl struggling to overcome the loss of her father who turns to the distracting thrill of joyriding. The short was written by Rebecca Daly and Glen Montgomery, with cinematography by Ruairi O’Brien.

‘Kings’, produced by Jackie Larkin, continues its busy festival run when it screens at the AFI Washington Film Showcase on the 3rd and 4th November; the Sydney Irish Film Festival, which runs from November 22nd -25th and the Palm Springs Festival in January 2008. It is also one of the 63 international films that will compete for the Foreign Language Film Oscar at the 2008 Academy Awards.

‘Kings’ was funded by Northern Ireland Screen, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board, the Broadcast Commission of Ireland and TG4.
