Casting Director Amy Rowan Shortlisted for European Casting Director Award
20 Jul 2016 :
Irish Casting Director Amy Rowan has been shortlisted for the first European Casting Director Award for her work on the Simon Fitzmaurice feature film My Name is Emily.

The award for best European Casting Director will be presented at the Locarno Film Festival at a ceremony on Sunday, August 7. The shortlist of 7 was chosen by the International Network of Casting Directors from 21 submissions and will go forward to a jury chosen by the Festival.

Amy Rowan is from Dublin and has been working in casting in Ireland for 18 years. Among her many previous credits are the Lenny Abrahamson films 'Adam and Paul' and 'Garage', 'Stella Days' with Martin Sheen and TV series 'Pure Mule', 'The Clinic', and the Chris O'Dowd comedy 'Moone Boy'. Her most recent work includes a film for Oscar-winning German director Volker Schloendorff and the bilingual Irish/English film The Song of Granite for Pat Collins. She is currently working again with writer Mark O'Halloran on a new feature film.

'My Name is Emily' stars Irish actress Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter) and newcomer George Webster. It was filmed in Ireland in the summer of 2014 and played in cinemas here earlier this year. It is the first feature film of Simon Fitzmaurice, a filmmaker with Motor Neurone Disease.
