Michael Inside Recommended for European Film Awards Nomination
21 Aug 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Frank Berry’s prison drama ‘Michael Inside’ has been selected among 49 films recommended for a nomination by the European Film Academy & EFA Productions.

With 35 different European countries represented in the long-list, a special selection committee consisting of the EFA Board and invited experts Giorgio Gosetti (Italy), Elise Jalladeau (Greece), Christophe Leparc (France), Jacob Neiendam (Denmark), Edvinas Pukšta (Lithuania) and Alik Shpilyuk (Ukraine) completed the list, selecting an addition 14 films.

In the coming weeks, the c3,500 members of the European Film Academy will vote for the nominations in the categories European Film, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenwriter. The nominations will then be announced on November 10th at the Seville European Film Festival in Spain.

An 8-member jury will decide on the awards recipients in the categories European Cinematographer, Editor, Production Designer, Costume Designer, Hair & Make-up Artist, Composer, Sound Designer and – for the first time – Visual Effects Supervisor.

Written and directed by Frank Berry, ‘Michael Inside’ stars Dafhyd Flynn, Moe Dunford and Lalor Roddy and tells the story of Michael McCrea, an impressionable 18-year-old living with his grandfather Francis in a Dublin housing estate, who gets caught holding a bag of drugs for his friend's older brother and is sentenced to three months in prison.

The film premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh last summer where it won Best Irish Film and Dafhyd picked up the Bingham Ray New Talent Award.  Since then it's been wowing audiences and critics alike.  It picked up the IFTA for ‘Best Film’ in February, and has garnered numerous five-star reviews.  The film has already screened at a number of international festivals across the world including premieres in the UK, US, and China.

Produced by Donna Eperon, Tristan Orpen Lynch and Aoife O'Sullivan for Subotica and Write Direction Films, the film was made with funding from the Irish Film Board.

The 31st European Film Awards will take place on December 15th in Seville.
