Irish actress Aoife Spratt has won the award for Best Leading Actress in a Feature Film for her role in ‘Trampoline’ at the Indie Fest in LA on Tuesday 5th November.

Wexford native and former DIT Drama student, Aoife Spratt starred in the lead role as Angie Corbett in the feature film about an English teacher in her 20’s who returns to her hometown of Nenagh to work at her local school, while dealing with the fallout of her father leaving her family.

‘Trampoline’ was written and directed by Tom Ryan and produced by Claire Gormley.

Mr Ryan previously worked as a camera trainee in New York with cinematographer Andrij Parekh (‘Half Nelson’, ‘Blue Valentine’) and on the films 'Dark Horse' by Todd Solondz and 'Shame' by Steve McQueen.

Kevin Minogue edited the feature while Cian O Brien, who served as sound recordist on the shoot, composed all original music for the film’s score.

‘Trampoline’ was filmed in Nenagh and was independently financed through contributions by local Nenagh businesses and the North Tipperary Arts Council.

The cast included Maggie Donovan, Eddie Murphy and Niamh Algar. The film also featured actors from the local theatre group ‘The Nenagh Players’ Margaret Walshe, Mike McMahon, Stuart Andrew and Tadhg Hogan Reddy.

Trampoline premiered at the IndieCork Film Festival on the 17th October and screened at the Clones Film Festival on the 27th October. The film will be screened on Friday 22nd November at the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival at IndieScreen in Brooklyn.

The trailer for ‘Trampoline’ is available to view below:
