Such films up for awards at the ceremony at the Burlington Hotel on Saturday include ‘32A’ nominated for Best Film, Lance Daly’s ‘Kisses’ which is up for seven nominations including Film, Script and Director and the Maze prison based ‘Hunger’ which has received eight nominations in total.

Speaking about the nominations for the Irish Film and Television Awards, Michael O’Keeffe, Chief Executive of the BCI said: “The BCI is delighted to see that 36 of the nominations for this year’s IFTA’s relate to programmes and films which have received funding through Sound & Vision, the Broadcasting Funding Scheme. The primary objective of the Scheme is to support quality programming on the themes of Irish culture, heritage and experience. I believe that the high number of nominations which have received funding through Sound & Vision, bears testimony to the success of achieving this objective. I wish the nominees every success on Saturday night.”
