Irish Screenwriter Wins Top Award at US Film Festival
24 Oct 2012 :
Brian MacEvilly
Irish screenwriter Brian MacEvilly has won the Atlantis Award at the Moondance Film Festival in New York for his screenplay ‘Song of the Lost Sister’.

The Atlantis Award is given to the best script submitted from a foreign country outside of the US.

‘Song of the Lost Sister’ is a script for a feature film, which tells the story of a feminist entrepreneur who finds herself trapped in a remote village. With only one way out across a dangerous mountain pass, and only one man who can guide her – an untamed masculinist straight out of the old west – her worst nightmares come true.

MacEvilly, who was an advertising copywriter before he became a full-time screenwriter, said he was “humbled” to be recognised by the Moondance Festival.

‘Song of the Lost Sister’ was also a finalist in this year's StoryPros International Screenplay Contest, Creative World Awards and Extreme Screenwriting Contest.
