17 Nov 2014 :
This year’s European Co-Production Award – Prix EURIMAGES, an award acknowledging the decisive role of co-productions in the European film industry, goes to Irish producer Ed Guiney.

Ed Guiney co-founded Element Pictures with Andrew Lowe in 2001. Today, Element has offices in Dublin and London, working across production, distribution, and exhibition.

Element has been involved in the production and distribution of over 30 feature films. Element projects that are currently in production include ‘Room’, an adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s award-winning best-selling novel, directed by Lenny Abrahamson and starring Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy. Element production ‘A Date For Mad Mary’, directed by Darren Thornton, is currently shooting in Dublin and Drogheda.

Other Element productions include Yorgos Lanthimos’ first English language film, ‘The Lobster’, starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Lea Seydoux and Ben Whishaw, Gerard Barrett’s ‘Glassland’, starring Jack Reynor, Toni Colette and Will Poulter and Jerzy Skolimowski’s ‘11 Minutes’, with Richard Dormer.

Recently completed Element productions include Abrahamson’s latest film ‘Frank’, starring Michael Fassbender, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Domhnall Gleeson which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival; and Ken Loach’s ‘Jimmy’s Hall’, a co-production with Sixteen Films which screened in competition at Cannes in 2014.

Other recent films include IFTA-winning film ‘What Richard Did’ (Lenny Abrahamson), starring Jack Reynor; ‘Shadow Dancer’ (James Marsh) starring Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough; ‘This Must Be the Place’ (Paolo Sorrentino) starring Sean Penn and Frances McDormand; ‘The Guard’ (John Michael McDonagh), starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle (currently the most successful independent Irish film of all time); ‘Garage’, the follow-up film to the award-winning ‘Adam & Paul’ (EFA-nominated for the script), from the same team of writer Mark O'Halloran and director Lenny Abrahamson, which was selected for Director’s Fortnight at Cannes 2007 and won the CICAE Art and Essai award; ‘The Wind that Shakes the Barley’ (Ken Loach), starring Cillian Murphy, which won the Palme d’Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and the EFA’s cinematography award; and ‘The Magdalene Sisters’ (Peter Mullan) which won the Golden Lion at Venice in 2001 and was nominated for the European Film Awards.
