‘Six Shooter’ Nominated For BAFTA
18 Jan 2005 :

Six Shooter

Martin McDonagh’s short film ‘Six Shooter’ has been nominated for a BAFTA award in the Best Short Film category.

A 30 minute imaginative black comedy, ‘Six Shooter’ is the first collaboration between BSÉ/IFB, Ireland’s national screen agency, and

Film Four Lab, the experimental division of Film Four dedicated to working with first time writers and directors.

‘Six Shooter’ is McDonagh’s debut film (he is well known for his previous work as a playright), the film stars Breandan Gleeson (Troy, Cold Mountain), Ruaidhri Conroy (Harts War), David Wilmot (Intermission) and Aisling O’Sullivan (The War Zone).

The film has picked up numerous awards at festivals during 2004 including Best Irish Short at the Foyle Film Festival 2004, and Best First Short Film at the Cork Film Festival and was selected to screen at the prestigious London Film Festival last September.

BSE/IFB CEO, Mark Woods said “We are very proud of the success of SIX SHOOTER, a film which announces the emergence of a serious new Irish film talent. We are delighted to co-finance this project which brings a wonderfully talented playwright into the film industry.”

‘Six Shooter’ will be broadcast on Channel 4 and is produced by Missing in Action Films, Funny Farm Film & Television and Fantastic Films and co-funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board and Film Four Lab. International sales are being handled by The Works.

The BAFTA Awards will be hosted by Stephen Fry on Saturday 12th February at the Odeon, Leicester Square and broadcast on BBC ONE.
