"Mystic Minnie" has received Special Mentions for Best Short Film, Best Directing, and Best Acting in the Athens International Monthly Art Film Festival. This is the first festival to reach its award stage for the film so we are undoubtedly excited for this result.

This is a testament to the hard work, sacrifice, and dedication by all members of the cast and crew to whom we are truly thankful.

The Best Directing Special Mention goes to Barry Smyth, who not only wrote the short screenplay, but also directed and produced it... in addition to securing locations and props (an actual donkey, a cart full of hand cut peat, and a vintage car just to name a few).

The Best Acting Special Mention was an "in general" category so all members of the cast, who did an excellent job slipping into the skin of their unique characters, receive the honour:

Great job to all members of the cast and crew and may there be many more happy returns in the future!


The award-winning "Born From Fire" has just received notification that it has been officially selected in the Lane Doc Fest in Jackson, Tennessee, USA in the Humanity category as it educates international viewers on Irish culture and how its historical figures, even those who are more obscure, affect entire communities and landmarks to this day. A section of the documentary is devoted to the work of an artist and a traditional blacksmith who pay tribute to the historical subject, Gráinne, by lovingly forging a work of art in her honour using traditional smithing methods with a 300 year old forge located not far from the area of Gráinne's impact.

We are delighted to announce that "Mystic Minnie" was selected in the first film festival that it has been submitted to and that has reached its notification date, the Stockholm City Film Festival. We will know of its nomination/award status by August 25th.

An American couple become the center of attention in a rural pub in 1950s Ireland when wagers are made on the wife's psychic abilities.

Eugene (Paul Murphy) and Carthy (John Barrett), two local pub dwellers from a small village in Ireland, share their outrageous gossip of the morning’s events with a suspicious Seamus (Anthony O'Boyle), who arrives in the pub after a hard slog in the bog. It appears that an American couple from Chicago, Hank (Joseph Palmer) and Minnie (Sarah O'Toole), had just put on a show of Minnie’s psychic abilities; but was there more to the their display than meets the eye?
