Jim Sheridan to receive Legend Award at Capri, Hollywood Festival
16 Dec 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Jim Sheridan also received the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s IFTA Film & Drama Awards
Six-time Oscar nominated director/writer/producer Jim Sheridan will be honoured with the Legend Award at the Capri, Hollywood Festival later this month.

He will follow in the footsteps of past recipients which include Ben Kingsley, John Malkovich, Dennis Hopper, Dante Ferretti and Samuel L. Jackson.

Sheridan will also participate in one of the fest’s many symposiums: “The influence of the Internet in the future of motion pictures while Netflix is rocking the boat of old production and distribution rules”. Irish films ‘Room’ and ‘Brooklyn’ are also scheduled to screen at the festival, with ‘Room’ actress Brie Larson set to receive the Best Actress Award.

The director was also this year honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the IFTA Film & Drama Awards for his body of work which includes ‘My Left Foot’, ‘Into The West’, ‘In the Name of the Father’, ‘The Field’, ‘The Boxer’, ‘In America’, ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, ‘Brothers’ and ‘Dream House’. He has received six Oscar nominations thus far – two for ‘My Left Foot’ (Best Director, Best Writing), three for ‘In The Name of the Father’ (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Writer) and one for ‘In America’ (Best Writing – shared with his daughters Naomi and Kirsten).

Sheridan’s next film will be ‘The Secret Scripture’ – an adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s Booker Prize shortlisted 2008 novel of the same name. The film, which is currently in post-production, was shot in Wicklow, Dublin, Kilkenny and Sligo earlier this year and tells the story of a 100 year old woman who recounts the diary of her extended stay at a mental hospital. ‘The Secret Scripture’ stars Oscar nominee Rooney Mara in the lead role, alongside Vanessa Redgrave, Eric Bana and Theo James as well as Irish actors Jack Reynor, Tom Vaughan Lawlor and Aidan Turner.

The 20th edition of the Capri, Hollywood Festival will take place December 27th – January 2nd.
