Céline Sciamma's Portrait of a Lady on Fire has been named best film of 2020 in the annual poll from the Dublin Film Critics Circle (DFCC).

Sciamma polled a close second behind Bong Joon Ho, who was named Best Director for his work on the Academy Award-winning Parasite.

Wolfwalkers, the latest animated feature from Kilkenny's Cartoon Saloon, was named Best Irish Film.

The increasingly dominant streaming platform Netflix produced the year's Best Documentary, David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet, and Uncut Gems, for which Adam Sandler was named Best Actor. Jessie Buckley from Kerry was named Best Actress for her work on I'm Thinking of Ending Things, another Netflix exclusive.

The DFCC awarded its annual breakthrough prize to Morfydd Clark for her work on Saint Maud and The Personal History of David Copperfield. The latter film won Best Screenplay for writers Simon Blackwell and Armando Iannucci.
