"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:
Sarah O'Toole as "Minnie"
Joseph Palmer as "Hank"
Paul Murphy as "Eugene"
Anthony O'Boyle as "Seamus"
John Barrett as "Gary Carthy"
Joe Sharkey as "Mick"
Helena McInerney as "Bernadette Flavin"
Aidan O'Sullivan as "Noel Moore"
Great job to all members of the cast and crew and may there be many more happy returns in the future!
