More Irish Success at Celtic Media Fest
21 Apr 2008 :
At Home With the Clearys
Irish productions swept the board at the Celtic Media Festival Awards closing ceremony, with Alison Millar’s ‘At Home With the Clearys’, Tom Collins ‘Kings’ and Mint Productions ‘Get Collins’ among the winners at the festivals gala dinner in the Radisson Hotel, Galway on Friday 18th April.

Alison Millar scooped the Frank Copplestown First Time Director Award for her IFTA-winning documentary ‘At Home with the Clearys’. The award, presented to the director of a first television programme or film, came with a cash prize of £1,000.

Mint Productions IFTA-nominated ‘Get Collins’, produced by Ailbhe Maher and directed by Steve Carson, received the Jury Prize which is awarded by an international jury for quality of production, direction, technical or craft excellence.

Tom Collin’s IFTA-winning feature ‘Kings’, produced by Jackie Larkin, received the festival’s Spirit of the Festival Gold Torc award. The prestigious torc is presented to a film or television programme wholly or substantially in a Celtic Language.

Another winner on the night was RTÉ Radio One, which was named Radio Station of the Year. Winners were presented their awards at a ceremony hosted by RTÉ's Mary Kennedy and TG4's Daithi O Se.

The Celtic Media Festival, now in its 29th year, celebrates excellence in broadcasting and film talent throughout the Celtic countries Ireland, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Cornwall, Wales and Brittany.

Friday night’s award ceremony was attended by over 400 delegates from the world of broadcasting including BBC Panorama journalist John Sweeney; Neil Mossey, writer of BEBO hit series ‘Kate Modern’; Director General of RTÉ Cathal Goan and TG4’s Padhraic O Ciardha and Leas Cheannasai.

The Celtic Media Festival moves to Wales next year for its 30th Anniversary Celebrations.
