‘You’re Ugly Too’ nominated for EFA Young Audience Award
01 Apr 2015 : Seán Brosnan
‘You’re Ugly Too’ is one of only three nominees at the awards
Following its successful premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival, the European Film Academy have announced that Irish feature film ‘You’re Ugly Too’ has been selected as one of three nominees in the EFA Young Audience Award 2015.

Written and directed by Mark Noonan (‘Questions’) and starring Aidan Gillen (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Calvary’) and Lauren Kinsella (‘Roy’), the film produced by John Keville and Conor Barry of SP Films received production support from the Irish Film Board.

The nominations for the EFA Young Audience Award were chosen by an international committee consisting of Per Eriksson, Swedish Film Institute, Beata Marciniak, New Horizons Association (Poland) and Paola Traversi, Museo Nazionale del Cinema (Italy). Previous winners of the award have included Regret! by Dave Schram and The Zigzag Kid by Vincent Bal. Founded in 1988, the European Film Academy now unites more than 3,000 European film professionals with the common aim of promoting Europe’s film culture.

‘You’re Ugly Too’ tells the story of a grumpy sardonic loner who has just been released from prison on compassionate leave to care for his eleven-year-old niece after the sudden death of her mother. The dysfunctional twosome head into the sleepy midlands together. With Stacey’s stress-related narcolepsy, and Will’s bungling attempts to become a father figure to her, a very human comedy begins to emerge. The team behind ‘You’re Ugly Too’ are now in production with their new Irish Film Board Signatures short film, ‘They Shoot People’.

On Young Audience Film Day on 3 May, the three nominated films will be screened to audiences of 12 – 14 year-olds in 25 cities across Europe.
