Ciarán Hinds has won the Best Actor award at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York for his role in Conor McPherson’s supernatural drama ‘The Eclipse’.

Set in an Irish seaside town, Hinds plays a widowed writer who, when helping out at an annual literary festival, develops a relationship with a visiting novelist (Iben Hjejle) and begins to see ghostly visions. Aidan Quinn also stars as a rival writer who is also pinning for the novelist’s attentions.

Directed by Irish playwright McPherson and co-written by McPherson and Billy Roche, the drama is produced by Robert Walpole at Treasure Entertainment and was shot on location in Cork last summer.

Irish crew who worked on the film included costume designer Consolata Boyle (The Queen); production designer Mark Geraghty (Get Rich or Die Tryin’) and cinematographer Ivan McCullough (The Sound of People). The film was posted in Windmill Lane with funding from the IFB, RTÉ and BCI.

Other Tribeca winners included actress Zoe Kazan picking up the Best Actress award for her performance in ‘The Exploding Girl' with the Best Narrative Feature award going to the Iranian film 'About Elly'.
