Five Irish filmmakers have been nominated for British Independent Film Awards.

Cork actor Cillian Murphy and son of Brendan Gleeson Domhnall Gleeson have both been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for their respective roles in 'Broken' and 'Shadow Dancer'.

Murphy plays the teacher of an already troubled young girl who witnesses a violent attack in Rufus Norris’ ‘Broken’. He features alongside Eloise Laurence, Tim Roth and Rory Kinnear, in what is British theatre director Norris’ feature film directorial debut.

Gleeson features opposite fellow Irish actors Aidan Gillen and David Wilmot in James Marsh's IRA-MI5 plot. English actress Andrea Riseborough, who plays Gleeson's sister in the Belfast-based film, is also nominated in the Best Actress category.

‘Intermission’ screenwriter Mark O’Rowe wrote the script for ‘Broken’, and has also been nominated in the Best Screenplay category. This follows his nomination last month for December’s European Film Academy Awards in Malta.

In total, ‘Broken’ is up for nine nominations, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Debut Director.

Other Irish nominees announced this afternoon (November 5) include Irish cinematographer Robbie Ryan, who is up for Best Technical Achievement for his work on Sally Potter’s coming-of-age drama ‘Ginger & Rosa’.

Irish co-production ‘Dreams of a Life’, which was partly shot in Dublin, and explores the true story of Joyce Vincent, a 38 year-old woman who died in her London apartment and was not found until three years later, is nominated for Best Documentary.

English woman Carol Morley directed, with Ireland’s Soho Moon Pictures co-producing. The documentary was partly funded by the Irish Film Board.

The British Independent Film Awards will take place in London on December 9, with Antrim-born actor James Nesbitt hosting for the seventh year.

For more on O’Rowe’s nomination for the EFA Awards, as well as that of Michael Fassbender see this previous news story on IFTN.
