Irish Writer Wins At London Film Awards
02 Jan 2013 : By Gearóid Gilmore
Irish writer-director Neasa Hardiman scooped the Best First-Feature Screenplay prize at the London Film Awards, which were announced on the 17th of December of last year.
Earlier this year, Neasa was nominated for her second BAFTA; she was awarded the gong for Best Youth Drama in 2010, before going on to win two RTS awards. She's currently in post-production on a BBC drama.

Irish writer-director Neasa Hardiman scooped the Best First-Feature Screenplay prize at the London Film Awards, which were announced on the 17th of December of last year.

Neasa’s screenplay, 'Sea Fever', a sci-fi drama set on a trawler off the West Coast of Ireland, is produced by Brendan McCarty and John McDonnell at Fantastic Films and is scheduled to go into production next year.

Speaking about the award, Neasa says "It's a great honour to win the Best First Feature prize here in London. My story is about science and belief, about trust and interdependence. I feel that it's a contemporary Irish story with contemporary Irish themes so it's great if that's already resonating internationally. I can't wait to make it now."

Earlier this year, Neasa was nominated for her second BAFTA; she was awarded the gong for Best Youth Drama in 2010, before going on to win two RTS awards. She's currently in post-production on a BBC drama.
