‘Twas a Morning in July’ double win at NY Film Festival

The New York International Independent Film & Video Festival announced recently that Brendan Kerins’ low budget feature, ‘Twas a Morning in July’ has scooped two of the events awards – namely Best International Directorial Debut and Best International Geographical Documentary. The feature is directed by Brendan Kerins.

The feature is produced by Premier Video Productions and John Cash of Goldenphotography. The film grew out of a trip that Tipperary-born photographer John took last year in a bid to boost his county's tourism profile. During an interview with Fran Curry on Tipp FM it was suggested that John should make a film.

‘Twas a Morning in July’ is a feature documentary that looks to act as a testament to Tipperary’s natural beauty. It features interviews with horse trainer Aiden O'Brien from Ballydoyle stables, former Tipperary hurler Pat Fox and Henry Healy, President Barack Obama's eighth cousin. Both New York International Independent Film & Video Festival awards will be presented at a ceremony in Los Angeles in November. The filmmaking pair are currently inviting sponsorship to help them make their way to Los Angeles in order to collect their awards. For more information e-mail Brendan at pvp@iol.ie.
