Maeve Murphy and cast including Scot Williams and Cara Seymour were present at the Coronet Cinema, Notting Hill, to receive the award.

Centering on a love story between a girl and an ex-priest, ‘Beyond the Fire’ also features a soundtrack with music from Irish folk band Kila and Chris O’Neill. The film was produced by Helen Alexander and executive produced by Frank Mannion and David Game. Swipe Films are handling worldwide sales. The film received development monies from the Irish Film Board and Northern Irish Screen and will also receive UK Film Council P&A funding to support its release in June.

Director, Maeve Murphy, stated: “I'm thrilled to have won this prestigious award. I am also looking forward to continuing our relationship with Patrick Fischer and MetFilm Distribution. MetFilm have been an invaluable partner on the film since providing all the post-production on the film at their state of the art facility at Ealing Studios.”

Maeve Murphy wrote and directed the award winning film ‘Savage Grace’. Scot Williams will next be seen as ‘Clubbed and The Crew’ and his co-star, Cara Seymour, recently starred in the Sundance hit ‘An Education’ with other credits including ‘The Savages’ and ‘Hotel Rwanda’.
